Observation 28269: Strobilurus Singer

When: 2009-10-24

Collection location: Yuba Pass, Tahoe National Forest, Sierra Co., California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Douglas Smith (douglas)

No specimen available

Found on the scales of sugar pine cones. This is the same habitat as S. diminutivus, but these don’t look like those. Those are usually found in the spring in the area, I’m not sure what these are. They are small, but still much larger than S. diminutivus.

Recognized by sight: Brown stipe and white pileus combined with the duff for dinner in this region has brought me to… S. trullisatus. I see it on much more than doug fir cones as some literature suggests.

Do you have more info on why you think these are S. trullisatus? There isn’t much here that suggests that species really, and they are much, much smaller than the other times I have seen that species.
