But didn’t see any that looked like they could have been mature versions of these… just a few old faded bitters, probably T. rubrobrunneus.

I think what happened with this obs was that, after spending almost four hours collecting and taking photos, and seeing lots of faded bitter Tylos (some of which I did taste), encounting these (possibly amidst some of the bitter ones) I just decided they were young versions of the faded ones. Found my notes on these, and there’s no mention of taste.

Thanks Noah, for pointing out what appears to be an error. I still don’t know T. plumbeoviolaceus very well, so I shouldn’t be so quick to use the name with a high level of confidence.

Difficult to say if I tasted these particular fruit bodies. I remember tasting a few bitter Tylos the day when I collected these. And I think these were growing together with some other more faded ones.

But I’ve got to admit, the mushrooms in the photo do look like one of several of the brown-capped mild-tasting types…. except for one thing. The pores did not bruise brown on this collection. I think I would have noticed.

KOH results similar to T. indecisus.

I may head back to this collection spot tomorrow.
