Stow, Mass. In sandy soil, after weeks of heavy rains.
September 13, 1911
(Includes notes pages--See other views)
Pileus smooth but for the presence of a patch of the volva; very slightly and innately streaked with the prevailing brown color. Margin striate, somewhat indistinctly in places.
Gills free, but connected with the stem by fine lines which traverse the intervening "channel." Short gills at times attached to the longer ones. Edges even, and, apparently, not at all fimbriate.
Stem a trifle attenuated upwards, stuffed with a fine wet pith. Lines on the upper part of the ring so fine as to be scarcely discernible--same on the stem above the ring. This is an unusually large long-stemmed specimen. Generally the stem-length is about equal to the diameter of the cap. In such specimens the stem is really equal.
