Spore print was taken. Not photographed.

Yes, I took a spore print. But I did not photograph the spore print. I can’t remember why. I may have sprayed fixative on the spore print and filed it away somewhere. The greenish color may not be stable (?).

Note, too: this observation took place in 2002 (11 years ago)!

that the space between the gills and the stem in C. brunneum from San Francisco can be greenish. This goes back to a time that predates C. molybdites being found in this area, and I can attest to the edibility of the mushrooms I have found like that. On the other hand, the edibility of C. molybdites can be hit and miss, in that one might get away with eating it one time, and not another.

Did you take a spore print?

Good record

Furthest northeast on MO so far. Good find.
