place as all the other an-unidentified mushrooms (approximately 70 percent an M.O.)
So where does this leave us?

So we’re agreeing that it’s a Laccaria? But not on a species? I don’t know what the standard west coast species are, or I’d have suggested them. :-)

the color (esp. of the gills) of L. trullisata are very different, and I have yet to see an observation of that species from the West Coast. Our L. amethysteo-occidentalis can fade, but when young is very purple, and is fairly large for a Laccaria.

I’d vote L. trullisata, Leon.

In sand, often buried in sand, common in sand dunes on the coast. North Bend has aq few of those…

A Laccaria, but…

is it one of the sand-loving ones (trulisata and maritima) because of… all that sand? Or the normal little brown one for your area (which I guess would be amethysteo-occidentalis). The sand-loving ones only officially occur in the east, but that’s not necessarily important.
