I think the apparent rarity is due to mushroom hunters not looking in deserts. E.g., they were common around Anza-Borrego (also SoCal) this winter, and some dunes in central WA last spring… Looks like Podaxis are also really common in the deserts down here.
This is not a frequent find. The bulb at the base is pretty descriptive, though. Thanks for showing it.
