I saw about half a dozen or so fruiting in that spot the day before — with fully expanded caps — but they were all “smooshed” (technical term for broken and collapsed,)apparently from the overnight rain. I went back the next day (before another round of rain) hoping to get lucky enough to catch a fresh one. That fresh one is what you see in this observation. I found these guys to be a lot more fragile than they look. When I tried to pick up one of the “smooshed” ones it fell apart in my hand. Tornado season is a bit of a drag on mushroom hunting here. Lotta rain, lotta wind=(
for P. candolleana, Judi. You must have found these right after the caps opened.
