These are rare in the woods in Pennslyvania

but I find them fairly often and in large numbers in old wood chip piles that weeds have grown up through, in places that are humid most of the time at this time of the year. I’ve also seen it fruit in two places in large numbers where I put stable bedding in gardens, two years in a raised bed for carrots, and once in a flower bed.

i really hope you dried these specimens – as Christian said – there are not that many collections, as these mushrooms blend in so extremely well – and the few from CA and OR i’ve sequenced are different, different from each other, and from the one from Europe and an environmental sequence from North Carolina.

Thanks Christian

I amended the name to reflect your comments. :)

Nice find!

Currently the only Oregon record on M.O.

It would be tough, because they are so rare, but it would be interesting to see how many species there are in this group worldwide. Yours strikes me as being particularly granular-capped and not appendiculate around the margin as so many are. But who knows.
