Observation 13068: Tricholoma (Fr.) Staude
When: 2008-10-23
No herbarium specimen
0 Sequences

Notes:
Fibrous-looking grey cap, long white stipe with yellowish area (ring zone?), and white notched gills.

The latter and fibrous cap point toward Tricholoma.

There were a few of these scattered about a small area, in moss under Eastern white pine. The photographs are of two specimens — first photo is of a mature mushroom and the subsequent three are of a younger one less than half as wide.

Fifth photo taken in the same area Nov. 6.

This looks like something close to Tricholoma portentosum, where there is a complex of species with more or less viscid cap with dark stripes and a mild, farinaceous taste, including T. luridum, a newly described T. guldenii, and probably many more…
