is the timing of this mushroom! gotta love CA coastal fogdrip! ;)
Darv, you must have a known patch of these, since you seem to collect them at this time on a regular basis over the years…
This is most definitely what we call porphyria here on the west coast. Whether it matches up with European porphyria genetics…that’s another story.
But I was thinking that the true porphyria may have been introduced to California with plants from Europe (or forestry equipment or something like that). It could easily have happened, because it’s a very common species, at least in northern Europe. Like phalloides is supposed to have done (although it isn’t quite that common here)?
That’s the name we have used for a long time and there are lots of photos of the California material here on Mushroom Observer. I have no clue if it will hold up to the new DNA taxonomy. It seems like every mushroom is getting a new name and the plasticity in the morphology of the species concept is becoming narrow. Where have all the lumpers gone?
but do you really have porphyria in California??
