Found under mixed conifer forest. Found at the Wild Plum campground, Sierra City.
These are different than when I found these before in the area. First time I saw them (also obs. here at the site…), the cap surface was fairly fibrous, with fibers over hanging the margins. This one here has a pretty much glabrous pileus. But we put a gill quickly under the scope, and confirmed the spores for the species here.
These look a lot like the Ripartites metrodii I saw in Geneva, I think it was mentioned that these species are perhaps synonymous.
This time I saw that the mycelium a the base was rather pinkish, and with rhizomes.
Only the third time these have been obs. in the history of the course.

a DNA-comparison between the Ripartites species/forms. I don’t think anything has been done with this genus yet, and I suspect that it has something to do with confusion around the forms metrodii and helomorphus.
