The date is only accurate to the month.
Brought into the 1996 Santa Cruz Fungus Fair.
The specimen didn’t come in with a sclerocium, but it may have had one. Identification was orginally P. decurrens, but based on Darvin’s report that Gilbertson & Ryvarden, 1987 considers P. tuberaster the correct name, I changed it.
