R. dissimulans

eventually becomes brown or brown-black, but not as black as the R. albonigra group. The top specimen in the top photo has a black or very dark brown margin, at least as represented by the photo and on that basis I used the name R. dissimulans (though many of these names are placeholders that will likely be changed in the future). Also, you dated the photo as Dec. 31. R. cantharellicola is a thermophilic species, most prevalent in the summer and fall, often into November but not typically in the middle of winter. It doesn’t need rain to fruit; I bet you could find it right now if you looked.

Not black…

This one stains various shades of brown, but not black. Doesn’t R. dissimulans stain black? It looks different than what have been calling R. dissimulans from up around Mendocino, which we find rather often.
