Observation 2626: Tubaria furfuracea (Pers.) Gillet

When: 2007-02-24

Collection location: Howarth Park, Santa Rosa, California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Debbie Drechsler (debdrex)

No specimen available

Notes:
I’ve been trying to figure out what this mushroom is and it suddenly occurred to me that it looks very much like the Laccaria amethysteo-occidentalis that I’ve seen this year. Well except for the lack of amethyst! It’s really small—-the cap is 15 mm across and the height is 3.5 cm. Could it be L. laccata?

Even with the multi-colored stalk?

It was the stipe that caught my interest. I don’t see that kind of marking on the images in Arora or online for Tubaria furfuracea.

It looiks like the common Tubaria. A tricky one to learn in all of its forms and colors. It likes wood chips, but fruits in a wide variety of habitats.
