Observation 4913: Lepiota (Pers.) Gray

When: 2007-11-12

Collection location: Los Trancos Preserve, Palo Alto, California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Douglas Smith (douglas)

No specimen available

Notes:
Still not sure on these, I guess I could call them Lepiota cristata group. But the colors seem to be off for L. cristata, and it isn’t umbonate.

The dried samples from last week I gave to Prof Vellinga from Berkeley, and I guess she will include them in her studies of Lepiota of CA.

I looked that over, yes. But that one mentions that they should be unbonate and have an odor (pungent?). These don’t have a decernable odor, and are not umbonate. But otherwise, the look and the color is about right. But I’m just not sure enough to put a name on it.

Lepiota castaneidisca?

I was wondering if you have considered Lepiota castaneidisca? It looks an awful lot like cristata but has lighter brown colors and in my experience isn’t always umbonate…
Here is a a link to else’s page on castaneidisca http://plantbio.berkeley.edu/...

Just thought I would throw that ou there…
