Who: Douglas Smith (douglas)

Specimen available

Found in wood chips in landscaping.

Going back over some old obs. comparing to the new Strophariaceae book by Noordeloos to see if I have any interesting Deconica obs.

This one kinda looks ok, with the light tan gills when young, and medium brown gills when old (not purple-brown-black gills), viscid cap, floccose stipe without a clean velar ring. Also the spores are roughly 7 × 4.5 um, mostly ellipsoid with some subangular. The smaller spores kinda push this over into D. crobula area.
