This is the first time I’ve seen it in Sebastopol. It’s in my back yard. I used to find it at Patrick’s Point State Park when I lived in Mckinleyville. They were bigger, maybe three times the size of these small guys!

Nice use of a silver coin to give scale. The beginning of a series, perhaps?

have you seen these before in Sebastopol?

This sure seems to be the year for ’em.

Which is rarer?

The mushroom or the dime? I go with the dime.

A. chlorocyanea was my first thought in the field, but it’s so darn small and the cap surface seems odd. I hope it gets bigger!
