Observation 12873: Tricholoma (Fr.) Staude

When: 2008-10-15

Collection location: Forest near Elgin St., Pembroke, Ontario, Canada [Click for map]

Who: Paul Derbyshire (Twizzler)

No specimen available

Brownish fibrillose cap with white sinuate gills and white stem. Gills develop brown spots as the mushroom ages, ending up quite “dirty” looking, particularly the gill edges. Stem also browns with age. Gill faces, where they don’t brown, do become pinkish, suggesting perhaps Entoloma.

Notched attachment may instead indicate Tricholoma.

These have been popping up in the two open-ish pine stands. These particular photos are from the Eastern white pine one.
