Observation 53859: Gyromitra infula (Schaeff.) Quél.

When: 2010-09-21

Collection location: Blue Ridge Parkway, Jackson Co., North Carolina, USA [Click for map]

Who: Ron Pastorino (Ronpast)

No specimen available

This lone specimen growing directly on an old log is definitely out of season even for NC.
It may be a variety as the spores were somewhat narrower than is usually reported and from a previous observation from California. These were ~ 17.5-20.3 X 7.0-8.4 microns. They did have the 2 oil droplets which are common for the species.

that I was on the wrong page. It doesn’t exactly look like a typical G. infula but everything else fits.
