When: 2008-07-09

Collection location: Pepperwood Preserve, Santa Rosa, California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Debbie Drechsler (debdrex)

No specimen available

All were growing together in a lawn. They had pilei that became very sticky when stored in moist environment and were pale yellow/tan. Those with convex caps had tan gills, that were attached, even slightly decurrent. The stipes were satiny, yellow/tan and rather lumpy. Base was decidedly bulbous on these. All produced a dark brown spore print. The one with the conical pileus had pallid gills when found but produced the same spore print as the others (at least when viewed without a microscope) and the gills turned the same shade of brown.That one also exhibited minute fibers (veil remnants?) at the top of the stipe which were dusted with spores.
