Collection location: Armstrong Redwoods State Park, Sonoma Co., California, USA [Click for map]
mykoweb has the collection in his personal herbarium.
I saw two fruitings of this species at Armstrong Woods and an additional one came in to the SOMA Camp id tables. The ones shown in this observation were under a small tanoak, near the stream that runs through the park. The area was dominated by coast redwoods, but there were also some Douglas firs in the area.

From Hesler & Smith: “…it is very distinctive…[b]ecause of the non-gelatinous cuticle on both pileus and stipe…. When dried, the pilei of H. virescens are near warm buff in color. Moreover, the green color develops as the carpophore matures, whereas in H. psittacinus the green pigment is present in the young buttons.”
Darv was photographing it as i arrived back from the field. The color is unique. What else distinguishes it?
