No specimen available

Several locations on west side of Magnolia between Fillmore and Alpine. In lawn, mostly near base of magnolias or roots. Clustered. I’m basing ID on the distinctive “mica” particles on cap (which wash off very easily). They liquify within a day, making the genus a no-brainer. The “host” population/organism is apparently the southern-most magnolia, as this is where I first saw them years ago, and this tree continues to reliably produce within two days of every rain. The other specimens are relatively new.
