they may pop up lots of places. Wikipedia claimed that they are “widely distributed in northern temperate regions.”
I just don’t remember ever seeing these, or frankly ever hearing the genus name before. Again, probably because it’s small and brown, not that it’s too small to see at all.
Somehow, small brown mushrooms just don’t stimulate most of us to stoop on down.
I don’t yet have a sense of how widely distributed this species is, but it appears to be pretty common in the area around Shasta (saw it again this morning after yesterday’s bonanza).
Little trickles and seeps with lots of moss and vine maple often have them somewhere, but unless they are larger, they can be tough to spot agains the yellow maple leaves.
They aren’t all that small even. I wonder if they often go misidentified as a weird Hypholoma or some other genus with mycenoid ochre-yellow fruitbodies.
Under the scope they are very distinctive – highly encrusted metuloids and smooth brown spores (but cap and stipe texture are macroscopically very different from Inocybe)
just how “broadly distributed” is this little mushroom, anyway?
do folks mostly just walk on by because it’s small?
what, exactly, distinguishes a Mythicomyces from its Strophariacea relatives?
