I must’ve been looking simultaneously at two different observations, because I mentally misconstrued the location for this post as being California.

I have noticed that many of Alan’s observations from Mexico look like the same species as what I see here in eastern PA. Really interesting. So I think the mushrooms in this observation may be the same species as the C. ignicolor found up here.

Thanks for pointing out my errors here.

This part of Mexico shares more species in common with the eastern U.S. than it does the western U.S. Perhaps the range of C. ignicolor sensu stricto. extends to Mexico; the type collection is from the Smokey Mountains.

Thanks, I see it now , Herb.

Small one with the base broken off.

Is C. ignicolor known from CA? Seems like there’s so little overlap for W/E NA mycorrhizals. But if there’s no western NA name, then C. ignicolor group works.

You can see the hollow stipe in the second photo.

You may be able to see…

if the stipe is/was hollow, which I think would support the Craterellus proposal.

Would it help to check

the stipes of dried material?

What is the character of the stipe context?
