You, cause you’re the one who finds the cool stuff so far. I need to know where you find these. If you go next Sat. to Yosemite, I’ll buy lunch for some show & tell.

This is a very good Phlegmacium observation – KOH and all. Thank you.

The humbling part is that I have not seen this species. The number of cort species that I have not seen in California diminishes as I gain collections, but this year alone I have seen a few new critters. This one is in that group. Keep it, we may not see it for years. There are many of these rare species. If they don’t get the funding the sequence these collections, I may request the material…


it’s rimmed all right…

but not sure if a tapering base qualifies as a bulb.
note ragged gill margins in photo.
