Found a good collection of these, from young buttons to mature mushrooms. Got the features down just fine, so I thought I would give these a try. Although I should know better with a Telemonia. Tried with the keys, and various photos I have, and really got nowhere. Seems like these match either nothing, or way too much. With Telemonia it seems that the number of species, and features that split them, almost anything out there is yet another species. You can do just as good it seems with just picking up a Telemonia and just name another species. It couldn’t do any better or worse than it is now.
