I'm interested in evidence of native P. ovoideocystidiata growing in NC. There is an INat observation in Lynchburg which is not too far north. Also serveral from Richmond. There is a mushroom oberserver sighting in NC, I think near Charlotte but I don't think it has been confirmed as Ovoids. I think they must be here especially in the western and north part of the state were the elevations are higher and the summers are not as hot as the coastal plains down here in Durham.

Anyone have evidence to support this? I'm hoping to get up to VA this spring for trout season and to have a look around for some.

The only iNaturalist record from NC I could find is this one:



I believe it's actually a Kuehneromyces and changed my vote.


This one is legit though:

Trout fishing indeed, especially in ovoid country......keep your eye's open after the spring warm up....


Once the greenery starts coming back and creating shade and especially after that occurs and it also rains....


Good luck on both the trout and always make sure that you get 100% positive ID....
