Observation 122750: Tomentellopsis pusilla
When: 2013-01-10

Notes: On pine litter, under duff in moist pocket, under young (17 year old) Bishop pine by side of road near the top of Mt. Vision.

This seems to fit the description well, but I have never seen it before. We do have Tomentellopsis sequences from root tips in the area, but this is the first fruitbody I’ve seen there. Mature basidia were rare, but spores were numerous.
