Observation 63753: Deconica (W.G. Sm.) P. Karst.

When: 2011-02-20

Collection location: Stebbins Cold Canyon Reserve, Solano Co., California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Byrain

Specimen available

Notes:
Found growing from under oak duff in grass under an oak tree, there was likely wood debris somewhere under there, but I am not sure. The spore print is brown/purple and I am saving them and drying specimens for when microscopy can be done.

The first picture was taken at the location, but as the rest of that set is quite unsatisfactory I took more this morning (2/21/11) which the rest of the pictures are from. The specimens were stored in the fridge overnight.
