Observation 27822: Lepiota sequoiarum Murrill
When: 2009-10-29
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: These were rather small and delicate with caps up to 3.8cm across. The spores were dextrinoid and ave~7.5 X 3.6 microns with a fairly high degree of variability.
They were growing in rocky ground by the side of a trail with tanoak and spruce nearby.
They do match the description in MD but I understand that more a detailed analysis would be necessary to pinpoint the species more conclusively.

caps a bit more lobed than what I’m used to, but more experience with this species now makes me feel like this is a good name for this observation.
