I did so want to add it to the Yosemite sp. list. Not on it yet, but it belongs there!!!
Without a fruit body, even with a photo, it’s just a rumor. ;(

That’s the stipe you see in the 1st picture.
Maybe it’ll be there next year.
I know where it is.

but it can’t be added to the official species list w/out a fruit body back-up!!!!

latex color?
acrid or mild?
any kind of stipe at all?
what did it look like in the ground? buried?

the gills are contorted, but not completely unrecognizeable. looks like ones that I’ve seen that have a stipe.
