Collection location: Pepperwood Preserve, Santa Rosa, California, USA [Click for map]
There were bunches of white inocybes in this location and I casually picked this one without making any notes, only to find that it was getting redder and redder, once picked. Oh, and it may have been a pale straw color when picked. It had no discernible odor. The pileus was 3cm across, stipe .7cm wide at apex and 4cm tall. Probably associated with live oak, although I do remember it was fruiting alone in an open grassy area.
I. jurana now called I. adaequata.

…I. pudica is listed as being associated with conifers. I don’t know how fluid that sort of thing is but there’s no conifers anywhere near where these were found. Are there other reddening Inocybes that fruit with live oak?
I thought I. pudica sounded like a good fit, too, until I saw that it favors conifers. This is an entirely oak habitat.
There is a good description of it in “Mushrooms Demystified”
