it was pretty nondescript … until I noticed the bluing. I also sorta remembered the genus name from before, but didn’t have computer access at the time to look it up. I did remember that it started with a Ch, and Todd took it from there.
Apparently only five sp. in NA, and they are distinctive, once you get the key.
This was one of the “hot finds” from the foray, even tho it was considered an “alien.” Mt. Mitchell was not one of the official foray locations. David and I went there prior to the NAMA foray, and ended up back-picking the Wildacres foray … following in the illustrious myco-footsteps of Renee Lebeuf!
Mt. Mitchell is one of my fave local spots to hunt.
for even trying to key this out. Not many mycologists have that ability. Certainlyl not I. Only Chamonixia I’ve heard about is caespitosa.
