McLaughlin, D.J. 1999. A search for two rare, endemic Minnesota mushroom species Final report submitted to the Natural Heritage and Nongame Research Program, Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. 3 pp.

The search was focused on Nerstrand Woods State Park where the two mushrooms were found last August. Neither Psathyrella rhodospora or Psathyrella cystidiosa were found this spring. A search for these species during the summer is needed to determine their fruiting patterns.
