The date is only accurate to the month.

Found during a foray sponsored by either the Fungus Federation of Santa Cruz or the Mycological Society of San Francisco.

Sight id’ed based on the clear constriction of the volva. However, the volva on this specimen is much more prominent that I have typically seen with this species. I suspect its large size and elevation above the ground is due to some environmental effect either weather or the soil/duff being disturbed. The photo was taken near a campsite.
