Observation 20572: Laccaria Berk. & Broome

When: 2009-01-31

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

Who: Douglas Smith (douglas)

No specimen available

Found under pines in grass. I’ve been calling these L. laccata in the past, but it was pointed out that these have fairly colorless gills, where L. laccata should have pinkish gills. At some point I wanted to look at the spores at least, but not sure when I’ll get to that.

Recognized by sight: Compared to laccata – proxima has paler gills, less striate cap, becoming scaly with age, grows with pine, and this looks like proxima. It’s usually a bit larger than laccata too.
