We have two things that get called Hygrocybe fornicata in CA. This is H. fornicata sensu Hesler and Smith. I see it every once in a while (I had four collections of it this year, but they are usually singles). It generally occurs north of the Bay Area.
We also have fornicata sensu Thiers. It is a little more grayish-brown to brownish-gray on the disc (there is one sitting on the desk next to me right now…) and a range on the central coast (I have seen it in Marin, San Mateo and Santa Cruz Co) it is a late winter fruiter, usually under Redwood or bay.
H. fornicata is an European name, so…
I also have this collection.
but using what features?
a shame if this one wasn’t saved. I am not convinced of the ID from what I can see in the photo.
it’s a finite pool of IDers, most of whom are on MO. Perhaps they he or she will chime in?
I remember Christian talking about the cool Hygrocybes that showed up…hard to believe that the weird ones/rarities didn’t get challenged by the folks there.
The ID tables were staffed in rotating two hour shifts with about a dozen people. It could have been named by someone from the East Coast.
not such a good match w/the description in the Bessettes Wax Cap book. and quite the potentially disparate distribution: New York AND California??!
