Observation 16421: Hygrophorus subalpinus A.H. Sm.

When: 2008-12-06

Collection location: Albion, California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Douglas Smith (douglas)

No specimen available

Notes:
Found by Hugh Smith, I believe he said under pine. These are kinda weird, if found in the mountains in the spring, I would call it an easy id, but wrong place, wrong time. Even with that, I don’t think there is another id for these, except for H. subalpinus, with the all white color, the thick stature, and the fibrous veil. A strange find for the coast in the fall. Hugh mentioned that he found a good sized patch of these, and only brought in this one good sample.
