Observation 57683: Chlorophyllum rachodes (Vittadini) Vellinga

When: 2010-10-31

Collection location: Manhattan Beach, California, USA [Click for map]

Who: dan harder (iblewit)

No specimen available

This is in SoCal and so, I expected to find chlorophyllum molybdites, but for the life of me, I couldn’t get it to give me a hint that it wasn’t a rachodes. These mushrooms came up in profusion 3 – 5 days after the first big rain in LA.
