Very little information on distribution of rare fungi in California exists, thus the need to search all data sources and develop a database and GIS product.
Data are a result of reviewing multiple data sets for the distribution of seven rare fungi in California, Region 5 Forest Service, and the results of field sampling by mycologists of the Humboldt Bay Mycological Society and the Mycological Society of San Francisco who were partners with the Forest Service for this project. The latter sampling was based upon a model developed from a ranking of vegetation types and seral stage classes by expert mycologists as to their likelihood of supporting potential habitat for the rare fungi. New occurrences of Sensitive fungi species were located and the model's prediction of vegetation types was largely successful. More "real" data are needed to use in the model to strengthen its utility. The dataset contains observations on seven species of fungi: Boletus pulcherrimus Cudonia monitcola Dendrocollybia recemosa (syn Collybia) Otidea smithii Phaeocollybia olivaceae Sowerbyella rhenana Tricholomopsis fulvescens
