The primary feature that set this one apart is the orange color; best observed when young, or in the flesh with older specimens. There are very few orangish Sarcodon, so that alone make it stand out.

It has been a good spring for S. “rimosus”; which would probably fit your subjective view of an “ugly brown” Sarcodon better.

we weren’t collecting.

it was a National Park. But if I do want to find a name, I do collect it, and if it’s an asco, I scope it. Otherwise … it’s guesswork.

Don’t you have something productive to do somewhere else, Mistah Christian?? Or is squatting MO and sniping your new career?

“that would eliminate a lot of confusion.”

how do you tell this sp. apart from similar Sarcodons? We also found an ugly brown Sarcodon this past week at Lassen, but I didn’t even attempt to ID it.

it’s not Mushroom Observer that doesn’t recognize the word “Herbarium” it’s your web browser. Next time you type herbarium and you get the red line under it, right click on it and select “Add to Dictionary”. That will solve one of your problems.

As to the rest, you are on your own…

Yes, it is the same,

but most (almost all) recognize this as a Sarcodon, and very few people would do a search for Hydnum indurescens on Mushroom Observer to find this fungus.
