4-5 stunted fruit bodies growing in a rivulet bed draining to Cave Gulch. These were located about 70m from my observed growth. This is the first time I’ve observed H. flavifolia in this location.

that we simply have better identifiers in the field.
Andrew knows what the mushroom looks like, so when he finds it, he knows it is something worth reporting. Furthermore, he is out looking specifically for it.
As for trying to figure out definitively whether this mushroom is increasingly common vs. more observers – we’ll never know, because hardly anyone in the mushroom world takes daily field notes.
WE SHOULD BE !!! IT’S UP TO ALL OF YOU – TAKE NOTES ON WHAT YOU SEE , WHEN, AND WHERE.
so I gotta ask…are they just getting more common, or do we just have better identifiers in the field? And how would we tell which it is? Just try and find sightings of these before the last handful of years…
Yea, I saw those there on Friday. Punted them all.
