I seem to find it when least expecting to see it. One year it was the only fungus found on a hot summer day and only ONE was fruiting. Usually it’s common in mid-winter. I wonder if it has a couple of seasonal flushes or a long continuous fruiting pattern.

I’ve generally found this species later in the season after some really good rains. What’s been your experience? Of course it’s a pretty easy species to miss if you aren’t looking for it carefully.
