When you get up in the higher elevations as Santa Fe Ski Basin is I’m not sure if it has to be rainy season to see mushrooms. I suspect there is snow during the Winter. All of the tall conifers create a lot of shade and I think the ground holds the moisture. There is a small stream running through the area. If you ever go to Santa Fe, go to this place. It is wonderful. There is an abundance of fungi. It was absolutely awesome and I never use that word. It did apply in this situation. I have a photo folder of about 30 unidentified with multiple photos of each. Nothing I saw looked familiar. What fun! Hopefully I’ll get there the same time next year. Thanks again for your help!

One of these days I’d like to forage in the SW during the wet season!

for your help on my observation. Great to get comments from someone who has seen a particular species. I see you have 3 observations of this one. Maybe I will see this one again next year on a future trip to the area.
