Recognized by sight: Based on macroscopic features only. I have generally found this species later in much wetter months near Lake quinalt and Mt. Adams area. When wet this species has an extremely viscid cap with clear liquid literally oozing on and from the cap margin. Stem color(slightly moist cap-rather wet for August) and margin behavior look promising for C.vanduzerensis.

I just noticed this comment now. I would call the habitat a human-developed forest site; one of Mt. Rainier area’s many trails.

Thanks for the comments, DH.

C. vanduzerensis-although I don’t know location of collection. Urban? Deep forest canopy? Montane or lowland.

Nice microscopy btw :)
