Who: Terri Clements/Donna Fulton (pinonbistro)

Specimen available

Notes:
Cap 3 cm. Growing in sandy soil under juniper and manzanita. Mild odor and taste.

There was cliff rose (Purshia subintegra) in bloom but I did not think to mention it until I found references suggesting that Entoloma clypeatum is mycorrhizal with bushes in the Rosaceae family.

I think the color of the gills and their broad attachment should have suggested to me that these were Entoloma.
