Collection location: Foothill Regional Park, Windsor, California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Debbie Drechsler (debdrex)

No specimen available

Notes:

On 04/25 there were a few clusters of these near the edge of a pond. Pilei were a dull orange and moist, some upturned. Gills were thick and waxy and mostly the same color as the caps. Some had whitish gills. Stalks were striate, and seemed fibrous, with white mycelia at the bases. Most were very small.


On 05/01 they were still present but pretty dried out. Pilei were two-toned buff and pale brown and the stipes were also tan. Gills were either pale tan or a whitish tan. Mycelia not apparent.


Spore print white and when moisture was introduced the mushrooms were reconstituted to their original moist texture and appearance.
