If anyone really cares where something was specifically found they could ask the observer. For the vast majority of observations, a general area is sufficient. I often only specify as close as the city a mushroom is found in. In this case, I am sure some people would be interested in its specific location, though perhaps for the wrong reasons.

where have I heard that before…

Well at least someone choked on it. I don’t think location specificity is a half-bad idea. Helps pinpoint collection sites in an area that gets a lot of mycological attention; 30+ years’ worth last I checked. Just sayin…

Step one, kindly remind someone to put down the knife and walk away before we can get a chance to photo a good looking specimen (whereas it was about to get chopped up while all others were having lunch peaceably-like).

Step two take this impressively nice photo, which no one else has posted from the area, allowing others to see what was found on the trip.

Step three remind the people with the knives that I have no idea where this ended up, and that I hope they enjoyed the specimen while choking on it.

And Step four, point out that the box that I put around Bassets here includes the Yuba Pass camp ground, and I didn’t feel like making 6-8 different locations that I stopped at within the 3-4 mile radius, and this is good enough.

You little punk.

wave pesky mycology students away from choice edible.

step two:

pretend you’re photographing an important specimen.

step three:

snatch, run, eat w/ wine pairing.

ps: should be Yubas Pass Campground, Tahoe National Forest, Sierra Co., California, USA. The same goes for anything else collected here.
