Observation 18446: Tubaria (W.G. Sm.) Gillet
When: 2009-02-14
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Finding these was a real surprise! They were growing from fallen sticks in a large patch about 400 feet square. There were probably fifty or sixty of them. Winter Laccaria?

According to mushroomexpert.com, Laccarias are mycorrhizal. These, however, are clearly saprobes.
