Walk leader La Monte Yarroll. We held a winter walk in response to another REI initiative to get people out into the wilds. We had over 30 people attend and we have quite a few species to add to the club life list. Part of the reason may be the unusual season, but I really want to call out the excellent identification work by Adam Haritan, in addition to our regular Club Identifiers and Mycologists.

Postia subcaesia is probably what we’ve been mistakenly calling Tyromyces caesius.
