When: 2011-12-19

Collection location: west of Lake Sonoma, California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Ron Pastorino (Ronpast)

No specimen available

Notes:
Very compact, ~ 8.5 cm across X 10.5 cm high.
Spores ~ 9.0-10.0 X 5.1-6.4 microns, with distinct lobed warts.
Ferric sulfate was neg. on stipe flesh and green on branch tips.
Melzers was also neg. on stipe flesh(see photo).
Looking at the spores, R. formosa seems like a more reasonable guess.
