Observation 947: Tubaria furfuracea (Pers.) Gillet

When: 2006-11-12

Collection location: Novato, California, USA [Click for map]

Who: John Kirkpatrick (natashadak)

No specimen available

I’ve seen this regularly in chipped wood. The cap often has white “stitching” around the parimeter. Spores are cinamon brown. A crushed cap does not have a particularly offensive odor (to my nose, anyway).

It looks like Tubaria furfuracea. You can compare it to the description at MykoWeb. At the very bottom, be sure to look at the second photo by Fred Stevens.
