Collection location: Bassetts, Sierra Co., California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Douglas Smith (douglas)

No specimen available

Found under alder and pine.

Same species as what I found in Yosemite two weeks before. These were a bit more viscid, slimy cap, and sticky stipe. Although it isn’t much viscid on the stipe. But these seem to be more like L. pseudomucidus. Although when I see that species on the coast, it is always soooo viscid, it is hard to hold in your hand, sliding right out of your grip. Also in those it seems like stipe is more consistently grey, where here it is slightly grey and mostly off-white. But I dried these, and maybe I’ll look at the spores one day, and if the spores turn out to better match L. pseudomucidus, I’ll just go with that id. There doesn’t seem to be a better one.
