When: 2013-11-23

Collection location: near Castella, California, USA [Click for map]


Who: (Aaron Cena) (mountainplayer)

No specimen available


Oak, pine and fir. It rained three days ago, last rain before that was late Sept. Temps over the past three/four days have been getting down into the high 20’s.

Gorgeous mushroom. This was my first time finding this species and I couldn’t believe what I was seeing after casually reaching down and grabbing it.

I would have loved to find more, in different stages of growth, but this was the only one.
