When: 2009-01-31

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

Who: Douglas Smith (douglas)

No specimen available

Found by Noah Siegel.

After all some discussion about what might be called H. aurantiacum here in the west, the Noah brings in this one. Mostly what people have been calling H. aurantiacum for years in the west here, the spines on the fertile surface are orange to brown. Here is an example of a case where the spines are mostly white. The white spines agree (more?) with the published description for H. aurantiacum, so is this maybe the real thing?
