I saw it in a lawn in Sunnyvale. I didn’t have a camera at the time as I was mushroom hunting during a break from my interrogation for a secret clearance.

also northern CA

campuses are great places, as it has steam pipes running underground.
but i’ve also seen it in a normal garden, here in Berkeley

They also grow in lawns in CA, but are uncommon in that habitat.

but outside I have the hardest time catching it with the cap open, it’s so fragile after opening! I always miss it by a couple hours and find it’s fallen over or mushed.

nice to find these in the wild!

here in CA they are restricted to greenhouses, terrariums and flowerpots!
