I scoped the one I found, I never got a hold of this collection. I did not confirm Neohygrophorus because there were no mature spores. I identified this species last year in Humboldt and think that this observation and my own from Mill Valley are the same. When it is old and dried out it looks a LOT different (and uglier).
To me, this observation and my Mill Valley collection (observation 28564) look like young versions of the Humboldt one, (observation 59525 and observation 59394). Other pictures of this species on MO, especially Sierra collections, look much more drab and tired.
Or at least the one that you collected?
It probably IS the same species as the tiny purplish one that you collected in Mill Valley, but I am not convinced that either are Neohygrophorus.
Curcat I’m so glad you will be able to scope this, having found a new specimen. I’m kicking myself. I was out for a walk and my eagle eyed daughter (12), spotted this mushroom. So I snapped the photos and tucked a specimen into my backpack to scope later. Someone had cleaned out the backpack however, by the time I had gotten got around to scoping it. Thanks all for the ID!
grey, purple, brown ‘frosted’ colour, widely spaced waxy gills, the stature and size… It all seems to match well to me. I am convinced this is the same thing I found and linked to below, and I dug up the single, tiny specimen last night, so I’ll take a look at it today.
Mike’s YNP collection is currently the default image for this species.
I’m not sure what about this makes it Neohygrophorus angelesianus. Are there any more reasons this id?
Esp. if you are so sure now that this has become the default image for the species on this site…
