Observation 18296: Leucopholiota decorosa (Peck) O.K. Mill., T.J. Volk & Bessette

When: 2008-09-15

Collection location: Columbia Co., Pennsylvania, USA [Click for map]

Who: Dave in NE PA

No specimen available

These are much smaller than the magnificent specimen brought in at the Summer NAMA Foray in Pipestem, WV in 2007. The smallness of thes caps (under 1 inch diameter) did cause me some doubt. Someone at the NJMA Fungus Festival brought in a collection of nearly identical specimens this past Fall.
