Observation 18296: Leucopholiota decorosa (Peck) O.K. Mill., T.J. Volk & Bessette
When: 2008-09-15
No herbarium specimen

Notes: These are much smaller than the magnificent specimen brought in at the Summer NAMA Foray in Pipestem, WV in 2007. The smallness of thes caps (under 1 inch diameter) did cause me some doubt. Someone at the NJMA Fungus Festival brought in a collection of nearly identical specimens this past Fall.

[admin – Sat Aug 14 01:59:34 +0000 2010]: Changed location name from ‘Columbia County, PA’ to ‘Columbia Co., Pennsylvania, USA
