Who: Ron Pastorino (Ronpast)

No specimen available

These had caps up to 7.5 cm across.
Spores were ~ (11.2)12.0-13.4(14.0) X 6.6-8.2 microns and somewhat warted.
Found these on the last day of the NAMA Foray. They were turned in to the Foray ID group so they may have been vouchered, but I don’t know if they were Id’ed.

it’s their attempted ID that will make you rave! ;)

I’m thinking that they didn’t even get saved, what with the current state of American cort knowledge. How many drawers of unidentified boring brown corts do you need to have at the Field Museum? On the final day of collection at NAMA, they were surely practicing fungal triage…but hey, maybe not.

They are never easy to ID but

compared to most of our Spring Sierran Telamonias, these are raving beauties.
