When: 2005-01-09

Notes: Brought into the 2005 Santa Cruz Fungus Fair. We were unable to place it even in a genus. We were unable to get a spore print. Note the unusual partial veil and the rhizomorph visible in image 22.

Size can be inferred from image 24. See notes there for details.

What about the partial veil?

Doesn’t the partial veil eliminate most of Hygrophoraceae? I can think of some Hygrophorus species with some very ephemeral partial veils, but they are generally the larger ones (H. subalpinus, H. purpurascens…) and I’ve never seen those actually cover the lamellae.
