Collection location: Victoria, British Columbia, Canada [Click for map]

Who: Douglas Smith (douglas)

No specimen available

I brought this into class at SFSU, and Dr. Desjardins looked at these, and said that this was just wrong. That I didn’t find these, and these being found was just wrong, and that was that. What do I know? I just picked them up, and brought them in. But I guess these are an east coast species, and this was probably the first time they were found west of the Mississippi. But you can tell these species from the gill collar, the gills don’t actually join to the stipe, but to a collar around the top of the stipe.

Seriously, next time you stumble on an unusual collection that does
not belong, make sure to include a few distinctly local plant
artifacts to drive the point indisputably.
