If it’s the same as the eastern NA/European species remains to be seen…

The CA collections are much greener…

Great, thanks!

So would you expect to see this mushroom with manzanita? And any idea what it is?

No manzanita

(or at least I didn’t notice any). And sorry, didn’t manage to collect any of this…

If you still have this, please save it.

Also, was there any Manzanita around?
