When: 2010-08-12

Collection location: Fraser Experimental Forest, Grand Co., Colorado, USA [Click for map]

Who: Ron Pastorino (Ronpast)

No specimen available

These were fairly common at the 50th NAMA Foray.
I didn’t get enough spores to see if they were “weakly amyloid” but they were in the right size range; ~ 4.2-5.0 X 3.0-3.5 microns for the few I measured.

is bruising orange, ovinus yellow; confluens has a pale orange cap, ovinus white to greyish brown; confluens grows with pine, ovinus with spruce. Both have non-amyloid spores.
