When: 2016-01-30

Collection location: Fern Ave., Boulder Creek, California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Courtney and Pat (theroach's)

No specimen available

White spore print. Growing on very rotten tan bark oak (picture of log included). Lots of small fruit bodies. Biggest cap was 2 cm smallest was 0.5 cm. There were probably 20-50 fruit bodies on this log. Hairy cap and margin. Spree were about 6 uM on average, we don’t have a super precise measuring set up yet as we are just taking pictures through the eye piece with our phone, we will update this number to a more accurate/precise measurement when we get a camera mount.
