Observation 32422: Clitocybe
When: 2010-01-22
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: My best guess for these is some kind of snow melt Clitocybe, although those species are mostly listed as occurring in mountainous areas of western NA. And, I don’t see the white rhizomorphs which one evidently expects for C. albirhiza types. Cap diameters between 1 cm and 4 cm. No spores dropped… looked for 5 minutes under the scope. Found on my lawn in poor ashy soil (previous inhabitants had spread coal ash in the area) about 5 or 6 m from a large Shagbark Hickory and a large White Pine. We have recently experienced a slight warmup around here (25F<t<45F) and the rainfall has washed the snow from the lawn. Previously, there had been snow cover for about 3 weeks, with temps occasionally dropping below 10F (lowest was 0F). I was quite surprised to find terrestrials at this time.
