Observation 17494: Rickenella swartzii (Fr.) Kuyper

When: 2008-12-06

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

Who: Douglas Smith (douglas)

No specimen available

Found in moss on the ground, under pine, D. fir, some tan oak was maybe near enough.

I was a bit excited to find these, it was the first time finding these for California for me, nice to see. Mixed in with a lot of Mycena, and kinda hard to see. I saw the small central black spot, and then turning over the id became clear, not Mycena.

I actually did find these in Albion, just up from the Albion river there. Not in Mendocino or Jackson forest.

nice find, Doug!

where’d you collect these? in Albion proper, or JSF?
