Found near the Tobesofkee River and US Hwy. 80, about 3 miles W of Macon, GA.
In mixed hardwood-pine forest.
Sporeprint whitish or cream. Spores appear round at 60x.
Stipe: central, ~4cm long, ~1cm thick, solid, firm, somewhat fibrous, flesh
white, does not bruise. A little wider at cap than at base, sides slightly
striated. No remnants of veil, no volva. Odor: vaguely bready.
Cap: Hemispherical, dry, skin thin-leathery, a very distinct leaf-green color
with brownish tones, not shiny. Diameter about equal to length of stipe.
Odor: foul yeasty.
Gills free, not merging or splitting, white to vanilla white, rather uniform in
depth but narrowing at center of cap, radiate in straight lines but for the
last 2 or 3 mm which "wobble" a bit to the cap edge.
Specimen was found in its mature or almost-mature state emerging from under a
sheaf of soil and litter it had pushed up.
