Observation 11209: Laccaria nobilis A.H. Sm.
When: 2008-09-05
Collection location: McCall, Idaho, USA [Click for map]
No herbarium specimen

Notes: At first glance I assumed these were the standard Laccaria laccata that are found at most forays. However, Dr. Cathy Cripps, Chief Mycologist for NAMA 2008 Foray, and her crew labeled practically these and all the similar collections as Laccaria nobilis. She and G.B. Mueller have done serious DNA work on the Laccarias. The major differences are the more scaly caps and stems along with the lack of obvious cheilocystidia. This is a more montane species commonly found in Idaho and the Rockies.
