Frequency in California?

Hypomyces lactifluorum is common in CA, but it fruits early in the season before most foragers are out searching. It can be found every year in the Sierras around 5,000 in late summer and every year in the Northen part of the state BEFORE THE FALL RAINS. It has been reported from the Bay Area, but fruits uncommonly and skips some years.

I’ve only collected H. lactifluorum in Arizona and Oregon. Do you see it regularly in California or was this an unusual find for you?
