always useful for sightings to contain more info than just a mere photo.
a “no reaction” KOH test is also useful data, altho KOH color changes might be more intrinsically interesting.
with corts, we need all the help we can get to make IDs.
Cap: 3-7 cm across, dry, hygrophanous.
Stipe: 5-9 cm long, 0.5-1.2 cm thick, enlarged but not bulbous towards base. UV white, leaving faint cortina.
Odor: raddish, taste mild. KOH no reaction on all parts.
“Aleuria Glen”, Jackson State Forest, 19-Dec-2012
Under Grand Fir, Western Hemlock, Tanoak, Douglas-fir and Coast Redwood.
in the case of an unknown cort like this one, the term “rare” might well be applicable, and the easy quick data from a few drops of KOH, only available in fresh specimens, useful.
no color change is also information.
rarely have interesting KOH reactions.
This thing looks like sect. Lanigeri, which I have gotten a sort of dull gray-green from before (cap).
