Observation 107377: Cortinarius caperatus (Pers.) Fr.

When: 2012-08-16

Collection location: Echo Summit, El Dorado Co., California, USA [Click for map]


Who: Mike McCurdy (lesmcurdy)

No specimen available

Found a small group of buttons to mid sized fruit bodies in lodgepole pine. One photo from 8 days later shows the best specimen found that day. There was obviously an early flush, but did not continue to produce. Not surprising, given the dry conditions.
