More of the unknown Hebeloma here. These are better samples then I found last week, and they went into the drier quicker. So, hopefully these will be good samples to put in the SFSU herbarium.

I’ve gone over the Veiled Hebeloma monographs enough times now, and I’ve giving up on these, I am convinced these are not in that monograph.

Now I need to find a copy of Jan Vesterholt’s monograph of Hebeloma of Nothern Europe. And if I get no where there, then I’ll just put these down as an unknown species, and leave them in the herbarium waiting for the next person to research Hebeloma in CA.

That is the monograph I refer to in the observation text. I downloaded the one from U Mich, and I have a hard copy I got used from Amazon for $7.

Although most of the time I use the key from this monograph, I seem to always end up on the same species.

Thanks for the backstory, Doug!

It is beyond useful when you give ID tips and other pertinant info on the photos that you post. Pretty pictures are great, but real knowledge is power.
When we take the time to post details with our photos, the myco-community on MO can learn right along with us. And nothing nails the lesson home better than a wrong ID corrected in the public domain! Not that that’s a bad thing…
