out of season fruitings all over the place.

it is good to document them, though. I suspect that this is just the new writing on the wall…and we’ll be seeing a lot more fungi that don’t correspond to what we think they do, and when they do it.

Excellent find!

My very quick search found that there are no other records for this species from the March-June period on Mushroom Observer!
