Collection location: Yosemite National Park, California, USA [Click for map]
Collection # YNP1520 for the Yosemite Fungal Survey.
The spore print on these was ochre and the spores were ~ 11.6-14.0 X 5.8-6.1 microns.
These two and another group were growing in clusters.
The combination of characters make them look like a cross between Gomphus floccosus and Gomphus bonarii.
The spores of G. bonarii are somewhat smaller than G. floccosus(according to the Millers’ book) and these fall in the transition zone.
Will be interesting to find out what DNA tells us.

Admir Giachini synonymizes bonarii with floccosus in his doctoral dissertation:
Giachini, A. (2004). Systematics, Phylogeny, and Ecology of Gomphus sensu lato. Ph.D. Dissertation. Oregon State University: Corvalis, OR. 446 p.
And it’s now Turbinellus floccosus (Schwein.) Earle.
