Notes: Collected in grassy area, near Lodgepole pine, in compacted sandy soil very near the Pacific Ocean.
CAP: mottled white to buff near rim of cap, toning to orange then nearly brick red near center; some small raised areas near center; viscid and slippery; large: 7+ inches across cap. Striations present, but only at undercurled 1cm of cap edge. STIPE: Thickest at base gradually becoming thinnest at cap attachment; 2 inches diameter at base and slightly swollen, with some areas pink at stipe base, almost white at top of stipe; with brown rhizomes attached to stipe base and upward perhaps 1.5 inches; some of base transluscent puce; slightly longitudinally striate, with a few areas nearly yellow or at least yellowish. GILLS: thick, light yellow; blunt. No noticeable aroma. Didn’t taste or slice specimen. Only one specimen found. I scraped the stipe length with a fingernail, but there was no bruising or color changes that I could see. It did look like the flesh of the stipe was white and somewhat watery.
