Observation 127208: Hygrophorus russula (Schaeff.) Kauffman

When: 2013-01-26

Collection location: South Yuba River State Park, Nevada Co., California, USA [Click for map]

Who: zack mikalonis (zackm)

Specimen available

On Hoyt Trail. These were abundant under mixed oak (evergreen and deciduous) forest. There were other mixed trees, manzanita, toyon, etc. Looks like Tricholoma, remeniscent of dryophilum of the coast, BUT these are more pink, and not growing with Q. agrifolia. The pink on the edge of the gills was also very pronounced. Taste mild, scent lightly floral.

The closest description I am finding is Tricholoma insigne (http://www.mushroomexpert.com/tricholoma.html and Ticholomas of North America pg 88 http://books.google.com/...=UPHL7VUbq&sig=oe8RmQFwGC3UjnVyvob8HIz2Vc&hl=en&sa=X&ei=FR0HUbyNJYjoiwLm8IGIAQ&ved=0CEEQ6AEwAw#v=onepage&q=Tricholoma%20insigne&f=false). However I am not sure if it grows in California. I have not tested it with KOH.
