Observation 59579: Gomphus floccosus (Schwein.) Singer

When: 2010-11-21

Seen at: Eureka, Humboldt Co., California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Erin Page Blanchard (CureCat)

No specimen available

Brought to the ID table at the Humboldt County Fungus Fair. The folks who collected the mushroom wrote down where it was found and then I managed to lose the paper earlier today… Dang.

Weird orange colour, eh? The shape reminds me a bit of this odd one, observation 59125, but the colours are quite different.

Unfortunately no herbarium specimen was preserved because it was riddled with larva.
