Observation 83341: Quercus chrysolepis Liebm.

When: 2011-11-24

Collection location: Tahoe National Forest, California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Byrain

No specimen available

Appears the same as whats on the acorn cupules in obs 81963 (http://mushroomobserver.org/observer/show_observation/81963?q=9htU), this time I managed to bring one home. Found November 20th, the observation date reflects the date the macro photos were taken.
The first micro pic has poor colors as my point and shoot produces horribly inconsistent colors when pointed down the eye-piece. It was originally much too blue, but I did my best to correct it with gimp.
