Sorry I never got back to you regarding this mushroom. Due to high water conditions I was unable to get back to where I found this one for several weeks, needless to say but by that time there were no others to be seen, I will look again next season and collect samples if I find any.

Thank you for responding.

If you are able to collect a specimen and dry it, that would be wonderful. If not, I understand. I am very interested by you photographs.

Very best,

Rod Tulloss

To say that indeed I do not have a preserved sample of this mushroom. Unfortunately it is not really practical for me to collect much in the way of sample material. However I am likely to be back in the area of observation in the near future and will collect if I see any of this one again.

There is a reasonable chance that this is a new species. It has a collapsing skirt…

…on the stem. It could be in section Caesareae or it could be in section Vaginatae (where it would be a “ringed ringless” species). Is it correct that you do not have a dried specimen?

Very best,
