Not sure how common…

but it was my first time seeing it. In “Mushrooms of Hawai’i” it is described from higher elevation habitat on a different substrate (Myoporum sandwicense), and I rarely spend time in those areas. They would see a little more moisture than where I found it (though still xeric), and perhaps it is more common there. My find was appx. 2,000 feet ~10" rain/yr.

nice find

don’t see these very often. perhaps they are commoner in Hawai’i.
