Observation 97489: Kavinia alboviridis (Morgan) Gilb. & Budington

Collected by underground fungus master Lynx Gallagher of the Perry Lab at University of Hawaii, Hilo during the 2012 Spring Fungi of the Sierra Nevada field course. Photographed by myself on Lynx’s D200. As his namesake suggests, this was, in fact, growing underground, beneath about 5-6 inches of duff, tucked inside what appeared to be a squirrel hole. A resupinate, hydnoid member of the Russulales!

Microscopy and more photography coming soon.
