Collection location: Forest near Elgin St., Pembroke, Ontario, Canada [Click for map]
This yellowish mushroom was fairly small, growing in pine duff in the same patch of pine-only woods where I’ve previously seen Tricholomopsis rutilans (obs. 10997) and an unidentified small red mushroom (obs. 10998).
That area is odd. I found many other mushrooms, of several species, growing there today (obs. 11174, 11175, and 11176). There is a large region of pine with rotting logs scattered about that looks ecologically uniform, but within it is this one small zone of seriously elevated mycodiversity for some reason. Today I found a single group of mushrooms of one species in that larger region and outside the mycodiverse zone (obs. 11177), by way of contrast with the six or seven species within the zone — a zone that is only a few meters in radius!
