Observation 71863: Hypomyces lactifluorum (Schwein.) Tul. & C. Tul.

When: 2011-07-18

Collection location: Millersylvania State Park, Thurston Co., Washington, USA [Click for map]

Who: Drew Henderson (Hendre17)

No specimen available

Cannot believe this season! Hard rains and much cooler than normal temperatures here in Western Washington have brought on a mass of new lichen growth- along with Russula sp. and thus, lobster mushrooms! I found plenty of Russula xerampelina and brevipes but only this one specimen that was parasitized. Very early for lobsters in my experience.

Temp: low 60’s raining.
