Collection location: Summit Co., Colorado, USA [Click for map]
Collected 100 meters downstream of the Arrhenia lobata in my other observation on here, this collection was in a larger clump that produced good photos.

Another example of the way-cool fungi that can be found in high alpine habitats. Good segue to offer a plug for Rob’s and the CMS’s Rocky Mountain
Mycoblitz, coming up at the end of this month. See the Colorado Mycological Society website for details: http://www.cmsweb.org/
Rob also sent me a link to Cathy Cripp’s paper on this genus…available on the BAMS yahoogroups site: http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/BayAreaMushrooms/files/
If you, like me, are fascinated by extreme habitats and the odd fungi they attract, consider coming to the McCall NAMA foray in September; Dr. Cripps is our chief mycologist for this function. A good excuse to go from virtual mushrooming to the field! And a favorite haunt of the late Dr. Orson Miller, another myco-alpinist.
