Observation 133229: Gomphidius largus O.K. Mill.

This specimen was growing alone under conifers @ ~ 4500 ft.
Cap was 12.7 cm across and dry.
Spores were ~ 15.9-19.3 X 5.0-6.3(6.8) microns.
O. K. Miller in a Mycologia article(Mycologia Jan-Feb 2003) thought that perhaps G. largus might be a synonym for G. glutinosus but didn’t have DNA evidence to verify it. He was the original author for the taxon.
This specimen didn’t look like our coastal G. glutinosus in coloring, was dry, and an unusual habitat and season.
I’m going with G. largus until somebody overrules it.
