When: 2007-09-17

Collection location: Mountain View, California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Alan Rockefeller (Alan Rockefeller)

No specimen available

Notes:
My neighbors found this in their garden. I took samples to the recent MSSF meeting, where it caused considerable confusion among experts.

I guess it is a Psathyrella, but only because I don’t have a better name for it. Maybe Lacrymaria?
