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

This was the second most common mushroom up there after the C. glacialis. Sometimes they would look similar when drier, but clearly different under the scope. This one was used to teach what is an amyloid spore, with dark blue warts on the spores in Melzer’s reagent.
