I found it in mixed Tanoak/Douglas-fir, on a strongly sloped hill.

The habitat is unknown because it was viewed on the specimen tables at SOMA Camp. I do not know who collected it or where it came from. Coastal California is the best for now.

What’s the habitat?

It’s a really neat Inocybe – I will look in my notes for micro data

I have a mushroom from this collection that I will save. The matsutake odor is strong. I think I can see a bluegreen stain on the top of the cap. Spores are smooth and ellipsoid. The pleurocystidia and cheilocystidia are relatively small and round for an Inocybe.

Very cool

This one… I found it on the UCSC Campus this year for the first time, strong odor of matsutake when fresh.

What we might call I. corydalina
