Observation 85040: Hygrophorus erubescens (Fr.) Fr.

When: 2011-12-22

Collection location: Redwood National Park, Orick, California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Noah Siegel (Noah)

Specimen available

This is Hygrophorus roseibrunneus sensu Largent but it’s WAY different from the roseibrunneus with live oak (it was described from Jasper Ridge, near Stanford) This is closer to H. erubescens but doesn’t fit with that either.

This is very common under Sitka Spruce in Northern CA.

Any ideas?

I’ll add a more detailed description when I get a chance…

H. erubescens? Looks like a good fit to me.

Did you put KOH on it?

“Hygrophorus pudorinus var. pudorinus f. pudorinus has a pinkish-buff cap, apical stipe scales that redden with age or drying, and sometimes a yellow stipe base.”

According to Largent/Mykowb.
