there was Pseudotsuga, Betula, and a large Pinus monticola. No Picea in the vicinity.

I took note of the trees, but didn’t record them, and now I’m hesitant to trust my memory. I remember Pinus contorta, Pseudotsuga, and possibly Betula. I picked this up during a survey and will be on that trail and at that spot at the end of July and will see what is actually there in the way of trees. The site only at 961m (3155’). The Halliday Fen area is calcareous as is most of north Pend Oreille Co..

It keys out pretty cleanly here: http://www.pnwfungi.org/...

Where I have found it

it has been mainly pine. It’s also said to occur in alpine areas with either Betula, Salix or Dryas. Always on calcareous ground.

Looks like it was described with Picea. What did you find yours around? Looks like pine at least.

Nice find.

Agreed Irene

leucoblema appears to be a better choice. These were large by Inocybe standards, with cap diameter up to the 7cm range. The fulvous disc was also distinctive.

Thanks for keeping an eye on the Inocybe stream.
