Collection location: Larch Mountain, Multnomah Co., Oregon, USA [Click for map]

Who: Daniel B. Wheeler (Tuberale)

No specimen available

Pretty sure this is my first ever Phaeocollybia. Will take with me to the Oregon Mycological Society tomorrow AM for identification by Dr. Lorelei Norvell, who is much more conversant with current Phaeocollybia keys than I. Found near a clearcut near milepost 7.5-7.6 on the Larch Mountain Road, Multnomah County, Oregon. Or, to put it another way, about 7 miles from Vista House on the Columbia River Gorge. Only 2 specimens were found, both fruiting within about a foot of each other.

Phaeocollybia luteosquamulosa it is.

Dr. Lorelei Novell has confirmed Phaeocollybia luteosquamulosa, Darvin. I’ll let you rename it, since the first suggestion was yours. BTW, Lorelei was very happy to get the collection, as it is not frequently collected – anywhere.

And I get my first confirmed Phaeocollybia. We both win!
