I’d remove the suggestion of banningiana, if it were possible to do so.

I think that Dan is onto something when he sees this observation as involving the same taxon as two others that he recorded this summer (8829 and 9075). I’m now inclined to think this is not a named species.


Ooooops, wrong Carolina!.

Sorry, that was NC, not SC (if that matters). Dyslexics untie!

I will post my photos today.

I just lowered my opinion of the determination to “doubtful”

For what it’s worth…

Especially, since Debbie says she saw this in SC. There are too many unknowns in the SE…


Looks just like the banningiana from SC…

We also found orange-capped material at Highlands. I believe that Jay Justice dried it. But maybe not.

I don’t think it can be caesarea…

It is very unusual for a jacksonii — pale yellow partial veil and no orange-red scraps on the stipe. It could be a very orange specimen of A. banningiana (in support of this possibility are colors of partial veil and stipe and a rather short volval sac). It could be an undescribed species. Or it could be something that is way north of its previously known range. It would really be nice to have dried material to go with the photo.
