Observation 111828: Hymenopellis radicata (Relhan) R.H. Petersen
When: 2012-10-01
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Looks to be Xerula of some sort. Stipe not brittle. Has a slight snakeskin pattern (or maybe you’d call it a different pattern). Is there any toxicity concern w/any of the Xerula species?

Taste & odor not distinctive, other than I expected the taste to be far more bland.

Alan: Why Hymenopellis instead of Xerula?

Dimitar: You said “close to”; is there another related mushroom on the East Coast that’s called radicata, yet is probably not identical to the regular radicata?

It is a Xerula

The east Coast one, close to X. radicata. There was a recent paper on these, I think.

found near

Found near nothing. Well, there does appear to be an old root system from perhaps a long-gone stump that could have been there almost a decade ago, or maybe from the white pines that are ~18’ away.
