And I would really enjoy your comments on the other recent Lepiotas I have been finding. Many that I do not have a good name for and few descent references to look at.

Lepiotas are probably one of the most common woodland mushrooms I see in our area. Ive been trying to document most of the oddballs.

But I have been saving most of the Lepiotas I find this year. I will send whatever you would like your way.

We have L. rubrotincta everywhere. Could probably bring back dozens with every walk.

less than 2cm on the largest one, and the total height was less than 3 cm. So I am not sure it is L. rubrotinctus.
