Collection location: Tomales Bay State Park, Marin Co., California, USA [Click for map]
These were found in the same spot as MO#122722 last year but these are 9 weeks later in the season.
Spores were 13.0-16.0 X 6.0-7.1 microns.
These spores look somewhat less rough than previous collections.

This material is 0/1 bp off the European material of C. mucosus. I have sequenced multiple collections from SPSP, the Oregon Sand banks and Sierra Nevada under lodgepole pine. It likes two needle pines. At this point of our genetic understanding, we have no reason to consider it a different species.
But it is a short jump between Shore pine and Bishop pine, both physically and genetically.
Don’t they share many of the same mycorrhizal species?
However, I suspect Noah has other reasons for his doubt.
it could mean that we don’t actually GET mucous here.
on the young fruit-bodies.
Apparently that characteristic is common for our local version of C. mucosus.
Doesn’t mean that it’s a direct match however.
Is the blue veil for real and not just in the picture?
Then it’s not mucosus.
Could be closer to mucifluus. I would have called it that in my area…
