I have seen more fruitbodies of Trich persuasion in the same area and they seem to all relatively fit with Tricholoma manzanitae, this collection did not have any yellow at the top of stipe nor any brown bruising on the gills. So what? I think it merits more looking into but I think it should be tucked in with this species.

gills are pure white, unchanging. No stains, even on mature specimens, i’ll take another pic later, have to go to work now.

according to Trudell and the Bessettes brand new Trich book…

T. manzanitae occurs under both manzanita and madrone. the staining on this specimen seems like a poor fit for that species, however.

this on doesnt seem Manz type

Sorry for the confusion Debbie, look at the other observation for what we think is Trich manz. This one was in a MADRONE stand and does not bruise as readily, with a CUCUMBER odor as well. very interesting to me and IMO very different than CA trichs described. KOH dark brown on cap…

did you observe the expected, striking color changes in these?
