Collection location: Donner Picnic Area, Nevada Co., California, USA [Click for map]
Who: Tom Bruns (pogon)
Found near margin of wet meadow near lodgepole and Jeffery pine, next to an unseasonably early Sarcodes plant (see photo). The white peridium, chocolate gleba, and staining is pretty typical of other members of the Amylogogon subgroup. The close proximity of Sarcodes made R. ellenae a likely suspect, as this is the only host to Sarcodes in this area. ITS sequence confirmed the R. ellenae species group.
