Proposed Names

37% (4)
Recognized by sight: Extremely scaly stipe base, pyramidal warts, double ring. No particular smell.
52% (3)
Recognized by sight: Deciduous pyramidal warts on cap, double partial veils attached at thickened margin, scaly bulb and stipe base all suggest A. cokeri. Having dried in situ, I doubt that the spores will be of “normal” size. If that were true then having the collection in hand might not be helpful in this case.

There are not to many species in section Lepidella that occasionally have a double ring.

Patrick, somehow I missed this one. Thank you for drawing my attention to this observation.

I’d say that there is a good probability (among the taxa that I know from the SE USA) that this is A. cokeri. Let’s give it cokeri with a question mark.
