Collection location: Santa Rosa, Sonoma Co., California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Debbie Drechsler (debdrex)

No specimen available

Found a small troop in a cultivated area which was watered the day before.

  • Pileus changes color depending on amount of moisture

  • Stipe hollow and fibrous, wider at base, with mycelial matt present

  • Gills free, creamy white turning tan as dark brown spores are released (overnight), and waxy looking, tan at outer edges

Went back to check the following week, to the day, after watering and more fruiting had occurred.
