When: 2006-11-22

Collection location: Menlo Park, California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Douglas Smith (douglas)

No specimen available

Ok, this year, it is like the sixth sense here, I see comatus — all the time…

Really this year, it is silly, I mean each time I go wondering around through grassy areas and looking in the landscaping at the edges of lawns and parks, I see these.

I was away for a week, and I came back to find easily 6-8 large groupings of 12-20 mushrooms all going bad, and turning black. And a week later it was about the same.

Don’t know if this is just a good year for these, or if I am just seeing more for some reason.
