Collection location: Wilder Ridge, Humboldt Co., California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Nathan Wilson (nathan)

No specimen available

I’m not completely satisfied with the color in these shots. They all seem more intense than the specimen was. The tips where distinctly yellow and the stalk was a light pinkish orange. I haven’t had a chance to try to color correct the images.

As far as the id goes, it’s based on the key in Mushrooms Demystified. It also might be R. formosus. I did notice a slight brown stain when I cut it, but I didn’t know if that was enough to really indicate that it was R. formosus.

Overall it was very poor collecting in southern Humboldt county this year. I believe the reason was an early cold snap which shutdown most of the mycorhizal species.
