Hebeloma DB10730  (~~mesophaeum)                           *California collections

This frequently encountered, autumnal fruiting Hebeloma from California can easily to be interpreted as Hebeloma mesophaeum. I sent some material to Jan Vesterholt in Denmark and according to his morphological and molecular analysis it is close, but not the same. This species is most common in Sierra Nevada during the Fall.
