I can’t say what the exact seaon is in your area, however, I can confirm that I have identified them in Pennsylvania starting in May. I would think your season would be with in a week or two of theirs, depending on temperatures.

Whats the maine season for these ?

I do not think that this mushroom lives in Ohio. I might be moving north soon. This is a species that I really want to find some day.

Edit: They are indeed in Ohio. See:

found on a fairly steep bank that goes down to a lake. The bank has a bunch of displaced leaves and wood from flooding and water flow. Mostly hardwood trees around with a couple pines here and there.

Nice Find!

This mushroom still eludes me, despite many years of searching.
