Observation 131744: Agaricales sensu lato
When: 2013-04-11

Notes: Growing in/with lichen at base of Arizona cypress at 7000’ elevation. Fungi are very old specimens but the following features are visible: small (cap and stem each about 1.25 inches), cap is sunken in center with inrolled margin, gilled. Associated lichen is fresh but so far I can find no description of the symbiotic Botrydina vulgaris lichen which is associated with Lichenomphalia umbellifera. Can anyone point me to online photos? Also, I can post photos of these mushrooms and associated lichen but was reluctant to do so because of the condition of the fungi although the habitat, including lichen shows pretty clearly. Guess I’ll go ahead and post photos since they show what the end stage of the fruiting body looks like.

I saved these but not sure whether they are too far gone to be of any use to the herbarium. I’m sure they overwintered at this high elevation and were likely frozen. So DNA may be compromised for example? Should I toss them you think?
