Observation 145243: Macowanites Kalchbr.
When: 2013-09-10
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Found near top of Larch Mountain, about 100 to 250 yards away from parking lot in many locations next to or in trail. Often with gravel from trail present, or with tree roots. Associated with Noble fir and Western hemlock (rarely). I noticed yesterday the bad containing these sporocarps had a peculiar, soapy aroma.
