Observation 132963: Tylopilus P. Karst.
When: 2013-05-04
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: found in slash pine dominant ecosystem with sabal palms and random oak hammocks.

these specimens appear to only fruit out of very sandy soil in association with pines (which are conifers/ gymnosperms)

Also, keep in mind it gets very hot and sunny during the day and many specimens in SWFL get sun bleached

for T. felleus. Stipe should have brownish reticulations. Cap should be tan to brown to pinkish… infrequently purplish. This specimen looks too pale.

Mykes, did you taste this mushroom?

I guess Tylopilus rhoadsiae

would also be a candidate. It does like sandy soil.

has more evidence to be Tylopilus felleus than anything else.

I have spore print as well.
