These beautiful coal mushrooms were extremely common in protected nooks under the redwoods at Armstrong Woods State Reserve. While R. kunzei is common in the area, another species, the extremely similar but much rarer R. californica is also a possibility. Because separating these two species requires looking at their spore shape under a microscope, the most prudent course is to leave the identification of these individuals Ramariopsis sp.
