When: 2009-06-08

Collection location: Bluestone State Park, Summers Co., West Virginia, USA [Click for map]

Who: Eddee (eddeeee)

No specimen available

Im not sure if this is what this is. From my understanding this only occurs on the west coast but someone reported it from Kansas. Found growing with Ramariopsis in the same area

Bill Roody tells me they have recorded this sp. from WV but it may be a county record.
The herbarium is at the college at Davis Elkins College, Elkins WV

An herbarium specimen would have been good as this might be a state record.
It is mostly a western species with reports from Kansas. I don’t know this one but based on photos your identification looks reasonable.
