Funny thing, I went to post this tonight and saw your observation from today. I actually am not familiar with this species, only just keyed it out today for the first time. It apparently has been fruiting in California for several months, based on a search of MO observations. Very wet fall here on the Central Coast, with warm spells, but dry for last several weeks.

of year for these up here in Washington. I have found them as early as March, but never in January! I just posted an observation of a few I came across today that were totally freshly fruiting. Do you come across them in January in California regularly?
