Collection location: Los Azufres, Michoacan, Mexico [Click for map]

2660m

Who: Alan Rockefeller (Alan Rockefeller)

No specimen available

Notes:
Good pics of the fresh mushrooms will be added later.

This species is unique because the gills remain white until the mushroom is very mature, at which point they turn purplish-brown.

The stem is much more smooth than P. zapotecorum, and the cap is a lighter color.
