Observation 8326: Fungi Bartl.
When: 2008-07-11
No herbarium specimen

Notes: I’ve been watching this mushroom for about a month, maybe even 6 weeks. It’s not getting larger. It is growing amongst the exposed surface roots of what I think is a kind of hackberry tree on the campus of Sonoma State University, between the sidewalk and the road on the north side of the gymnasium. The photo to me seems slightly more yellow in color than the mushroom appears in real. In the shade of the tree, they appear more orange at the tips. I don’t think it’s a Spathularia because of the small size and the way the individual “fronds” merge when in mass. I suspect indeterminate growth.

Odd habit

This looks strange. More like a Phaeolus with the bright colors. It would be interesting to see if it gets larger when the rains arrive.
