When: 2013-07-28
( 2134m)
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: These were found in a cluster growing just below the surface, but creating an obviouse bulge that gave them away. The habitat was a mixed fir/lodgepole pine forest, in fine sandy soil. Some were decomposing, and full of fly larvae.

The material is on its way to Corvallis. Just collected Sunday. The microscopy should be telling.

drawn to description of habitat: “Scattered to gregarious or clustered (usually buried, sometimes erumpent) under pine; widely distributed in western North America and very common. It is often abundant in the Sierra Nevada as well as along the coast whenever it is damp enough.”

Also, under FRUITING BODY: “Outer surface yellow to tawny or ochraceous when young, but usually overlaid with conspicuous brown to reddish-brown rhizomorphs (nycelial strands), often mottled with red or reddish-brown areas (especially in age), sometimes reddening somewhat when bruised or discoloring brown to rusty-brown.”

I’d want to see microscopy before going further.

Did Caz look at it under a microscope?
