Collection location: Yakima Co., Washington, USA [Click for map]

Who: BlueCanoe

No specimen available

Found in unburned mid-elevation mixed-conifer forest. Compared to other M. snyderi specimens we collected, these specimens are relatively narrow with a long stipe relative to the cap height. Their stipes are also not as complex. Phenotypic variants of M. snyderi, or a different species altogether? White balance calibrated using gray card.

that these aren’t a good fit for M. snyderi.
Dan Nicholson has found something like this in a wet/sedgy area near his place around Yuba City.
