Who: kweichert
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Found in sandy dune scrub in leaf litter at the base of a shrubby coast live oak tree. Parasitic fungus Hypomyces chrysospermus covering cap and pore surface. After scraping some of the Hypomyces off the cap, it was reddish-brown, thick. Pore surface was olive-yellow, tough to see under the white parasite. Stalk short and stout, tapering proximally and extremely bulbous just beyond, with a thinner stem emerging from the bulb. Flesh blueing with exposure. Spore print unobtainable due to Hypomyces.
