Observation 169178: Xanthoconium purpureum Snell & E.A. Dick
When: 2014-07-05
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Walked 2.5 miles of trail, examined mossy lake shoreline, and bushwhacked into a remote campsite. Aside from two fruitngs of old yellow waxies with shredded caps, this was the only mushroom observed the entire day.

X. purpureum seems to like the acidic upland beech woods.

Second photo in direct sunlight.

Specimen appeared pristine but was typically riddled with insect tunnels.
