    1. Thanks! Care to elaborate why you suggest that species? It seems nick-named the "California" fungi and EOL also reports US findings only:
      http://eol.org/pages/6684757/maps

      Furthermore, almost all reference photos of the species show it growing on live wood, whilst I found this one growing on the forest floor.

  1. Ah- on the ground would probably take C. aurantiaca off of the possible list, but it wasn't easy to tell if it wasn't a mossy log. I suggested it because it the immature ones look just like that. It's so common around here I hadn't figured it might only be found up here on the northwest coast of the Americas... but it looks like that is certainly the case. On the other hand there may be a similar Chrysompahlina that does grow in Europe. They are closely related to Hygrocybes too, so that family would be good to explore.

    1. Thanks, and you may very well be right. The expert giving me suggestions said it could be anything, including Rickenella fibula, Loreleia postii, L. marchiantae, Hygrocybe sp. He certainly said it in a way that does not exclude your suggestion, so all options are wide open. A bit too wide :) Posted 3 years ago
