The trouble with believing in yourself…

Thanks Noah! The first time I saw this species on the east coast it was different enough from what I’m used to seeing in the western US that eliminated this and assumed it was dark spored. I didn’t see any evidence of the typical little stem and the pileus surface had a frosty look that was unfamiliar. However, with this second observation I knew it was the same as the other collection and applied the same name, but didn’t check for the little stem. Now that I’m looking for it, it’s pretty obvious. I still haven’t unpacked my scope, but I’m willing to bet the spores will be white!
