Collection location: Rohnert Park, Sonoma Co., California, USA [Click for map]

Who: George Riner (mycogeo)

No specimen available

Not 100% sure because of the thicker bracts and the color range being mostly dark brown. But the overall growth and the pore surface seem correct. This was found along with several others on a cut stump and its roots on Sonoma State U campus. The stump was an a small stand of redwood, but it’s a landscaped area, so can’t really be sure what the stump was from without asking the plant crew.

this was taken in late afternoon sunlight on my porch, so the shadows are strong but the colors seem correct
An attempt to capture the (unusual) thickness of the bracts.

looks OK. Thicker, more velvety and with duller colours as long as it’s young.
