Observation 205884: Gomphidius subroseus Kauffman

Extremely early for this species in this locale. We find Chroogomphus and Gomphidious about mid August historically(altho small summer fruiting can be common). Definitely an overlapping season so far. Most fungi and plants are at mid summer growth currently(July/August behaviors).

Herbarium specimen available for Nathan Wilson(if he wishes). B. rex-veris was the associate boletus Sp. at this location.

Found near multiple Ramaria species(R.rasilispora, R.botrytis mainly) and B. rex-veris.

Beneath Douglas fir, silver fir and Ponderosa pine.

Elevation: 2700ft.

Temp: mid 70’s.

“Our rules”

For sure! I’m thinking soon our global guide book usage of season(e.g “August-October” or March- June) will have to be done away with and replaced with “wherever and when ever” and be based more on macroscopic and microscopic descriptions only. Kind of like we’ve been proving here on MO for multiple seasons.

For instance,

Polyporus squamous has only been found in the MidWest and East of the Mississippi( usually), and I collected and dried one this Spring here in Yakim,WA. Also, from 2009-2011 I was taking up interest in lichenology and with Jason Hollingers assistance discovered Mennegazia subsimilis and M.terrebrata in multiple locations throughout WA state.

Regional fruiting temps, seasons and even macro morphology in the fruiting bodies will no doubt change throughout our future relationships with Fungi, slime molds and lichens. Glad we can use microscopy, photography and data basing to keep track as we keep movin’ along the path.

Thanks again for your continued support and candor Deb!
