Observation 3371: Discina perlata (Fr.) Fr.

When: 2005-06-09

Collection location: Bassetts, Sierra Co., California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Douglas Smith (douglas)

No specimen available

Notes:
Observation from the “Spring Fungi of the Sierra Nevada”, June 9th, 2005, Yuba Pass region.

Found a bunch of these one day walking in a conifer forest, among the snow melt and rotting logs. I have one source that says these are as popular as Morels in some part of Europe, and another source which says these are dangerously poisonous, like Gymomitra. So, I guess your milage may vary, any one who knows better can add a comment here.
