Looking forward to your obs. It would be nice to see the range expand. The color is variable changing from generally dull pinkish brown tones to more ochraceous or straw ones as it ages and dries.
Noah, your CA collection looks a lot like this one, and both with similar habitat and season. If Cleistocybe, then I think probably vernalis.
I do believe that I have also found this species in the Sierra this past week; talk about range extensions! ;0
Everything so far checks out. Fruit body color is apparently variable over time, drying and no doubt individual characteristics. My collection color resembles the photo in Trudell’s book, KOH turns pale green and the micro is also a match. will put up everything tomorrow.
The color is close to correct, it was taken midday with fun sun (shaded by my hat) so the colors might be a little warm, but it’s close. I’ll send you another shot. The KOH rxn on the cap was yellowish-green. It was at about 2,000 feet.
I’ll send you the collection.
Looks like you may have established a new western range record for C. vernalis. The morphology looks dead on, but the color is disturbingly orange. How acurate is it? One time I found it in a year or two old, lightly burned area. If you still have a fresh specimen and some KOH, try a drop on the cap to see if it gives a green rxn. What elevation was this? Could I get a piece of it from you?
