Britney, thanks for leading me to the place; it was a great mushroom hunting day today. My pictures of these mushrooms and microscopy are in observation 100353.

Looking forward to tomorrow

It would be great if you could find it again. I’ve been working on assembling a comprehensive herbarium of well-documented collections of mycenoid species found in the PNW and would appreciate contributions to this herbarium. I’ll send you a private email with details.

Sava, I know right where it is.

I could head up there again and try to collect the smaller ones seen in the photo. May I email you via this site?

If you see it again

Britney, if you come across this mushroom again, please save it. I would drive to Lebanon for M. rutilaniformis or M. pelianthina!

I would…

Really like to propose Callistosporium purpureomarginatum, but that is known to grow on oak. Then again, so is Mycena rutilantiformis…

Thanks Christian!
