Collection location: Marble Mountain Ranch, Siskiyou Co., California, USA [Click for map]

Who: John Harlan (harlanx6)

No specimen available

Mowed grassy area, under a single douglas fir. I suspect these are the same as the mouse tricholoma in obs # 13976, found within a couple of feet of each other, but these appear to have erupted several days ago. Spore print is white.

Still might be a Trich., but T. myomyces, I’m not sure, it is too pale, all over. Also I think that the pigment in the Trich. surface hyphae is in the cell walls, so it doesn’t get washed out by the rain. I guess thats not true for all Trichs, there are some where the pigment is encrusted on the hyphae, but it isn’t like in Russula where the pigment is in the cuticle layer…

Need to make sure it isn’t an Inocybe either, but the gills don’t look brown enough in the older ones…

Anyway there are a bunch of grey Trichs. so, could be a number…

Are you sure of your ID?

The stature seems a bit delicate for a trich, and the cap too pale for the species, but I suppose they coulda been beat up by the rain…
