Collection location: Bolinas Ridge, Marin Co., California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Ron Pastorino (Ronpast)

No specimen available

These mostly look like the T. tuberosa with the small stature, pale coloring, and very tough texture. However, these were more highly branched and the tips were blunter than usually reported. Also there is the problem with the spores. These were in the range of 15.0-19.9 X 7.5-9.9 microns and rather uniquely shaped. They are long enough but appear wider than reported in the literature(13-20 X 4.5-6.5 microns).
In any event, there are few species to pick from so for the time being I’ll go with T. tuberosa.
