Also known as Leucocoprinus cepaestipes. These specimens were collected from several piles of wood chips along the side of a country road. Collection was done the morning after a torrential down pour. Specimens still show evidence of a fine-scaled bell-shaped cap and a partial veil. Spores are broadly ellipsoid, with a germ pore and smooth. Cap surface showed no change with KOH. Close examination by Dr. Methven in 2015 (see annotation above) combined with the 2015 DNA analysis confirmed that this specimen is Leucocoprinus cepistipes.
