These stubby little guys were growing in fairly hard ground by a trail and near Madrone, live oak and maybe one old pine. They are immature but have some interesting characteristics; a very marginate bulb, no violet colorations, not viscid although some debris was adhering to both the cap and stipe, and red staining with KOH on the cap, stipe, cap flesh and stipe flesh. The spores,(from a gill section) were approx. 9.0-10.0(10.9) X 4.9-6.0(7.0)microns and fairly rough. They were about 5 X 5 cm in size.
