Observation 93386: Myriostoma coliforme (Dicks.) Corda

When: 2009-10-12

Collection location: Wichita, Kansas, USA [Click for map]

Who: Mycoau

Specimen available

Notes:
Specimen should be available through the KVMS. Contact Sherry or Richard Kay for details. Specimen donated in 2009. Unfortunately, I do not have more photos available at this time (my photo backups are located elsewhere). Even more unfortunate is the destruction of the fruiting site. I had seen this mushroom annually for several years until they bulldozed the area. I have not seen it since.

convenient maybe, a testament to diversity of habitat, morphology, etc. within the species. but my gut says there are cryptic species within and among coliforme.

a new one from new mexico popped up since this comment thread started:

Would it not be nice if they were?

It’s a very variable species as you can see in my observations.

i’m really beginning to doubt the monotypic status of this genus.
