just not easily spotted.
Apparently Thiers spotted Dendrocollybia in Skillman flat,nevada county (got to be twenty years ago). and the Tahoe siting is slightly suspect apparently. This might be the first collection in twenty years on the range. It does occur in the cascades a bit more frequently.
I wont call it common until we see more than one a decade in the sierra, there is one report in the sierra to date (Tahoe). We had a small class in Sonora where a friend asked if we “had seen this one” and yes I almost didnt bend over to check it.
they may well be more common than we think…their caps vaguely resemble just another boring old mycena from the top, other than that slightly different gray color. you almost have to be on the ground already, looking at something else, to see them pop out of the background.
I have found them twice at JSF, and their sclerotia (but never the fruit bodies) at Huckleberry Preserve in the East Bay.
there was actually a census in the Sierra for these things several years ago…but quickly running through a large plot of land is not gonna turn these little guys up.
who found them?
