Observation 781: Chroogomphus (Singer) O.K. Mill.
When: 2006-09-30
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Here is the species list from the Echo Summit foray in South Lake Tahoe, CA. This is a yearly event put on by the Fungus Fed. of Santa Cruz, and many thanks to the organizers, which put on a great weekend for all invovled. But the weekend was a bad one for mushroom hunting, it was very dry, and there were more dried out species found than fresh ones. But still almost 40 species were found fresh enough to id., although I was told on a normal year it would be over 60, and 100 on a good year.

Proposed Names

55% (1)
Recognized by sight: Given the location and the conditions this seems like a likely possibility. I don’t know if C. vinicolor or C. ochraceus have been verified as coming from the Sierra.
55% (1)
Recognized by sight: C. ochraceus can look macroscopically identical to C. vinicolor, C. pseudovinicolor and C. rutilus (which doesn’t appear to occur in the US) and there are no microscopy images or notes.
83% (1)
Eyes3
Recognized by sight: Red-brown to orange to ocher color, growing with pine, decurrent gills. Microscopy needed to assign to species.
Used references: Miller Jr., O.K. (2003). The Gomphidiaceae revisited: a worldwide perspective. Mycologia 95(1): 176-183.
