  1. That is a beautyful fungi Posted one month ago
    1. Thanks Ernst! Perfectly young and fresh. I was leading a small group foray, first time since Covid-19, and it was found (and collected, quite carefully) by a participant. I carefully perched it on this mossy log to gain better light. Posted one month ago, modified one month ago
  2. Awesome in this stage of growth! Posted one month ago
    1. I think so too! So many mushroom features drop away as they age, with rain, or as they are handled. This one was in its early prime, yes?! Posted one month ago

Lepiota magnispora is a beautiful woodland species easily recognized by its coarsely scaled, yellowish-brown cap, appendiculate margin, shaggy stipe, free gills and white spore print. Unlike many Lepiotas, the partial veil does not form a well developed annulus.
