Specimen available

It was a good year for these, something about the weather being just right. But anyplace there was burnt wood, there were these. The second shot shows a pile of charcoal I came across, and it was covered with the caps. So, I took a few shots of how variable this one is, the first shot is young fresh ones, and the stipes are light-tan-pallid, with a clear fibrous annulus. The second shot is of older ones, and they have darkened, with dark stipes and often no clear annulus. The third shot is of another collection where they are smaller and older. This species also has a universal veil, which isn’t always seen, but in the first two you can see the universal veil tissue on the caps.
