Observation 145404: Leccinum Gray
When: 2013-09-14
No herbarium specimen

Notes: This mushroom is similar to http://mushroomobserver.org/145333?q=1UGJT

I found them growing in the grass, not in the shade. These specimens were small in size and young, probably a day or two old, but i recall finding some that are approximately 15 cm in height.

Pictures 74, 75 and 77 are of the youngest specimen and 78, 79 of the oldest. You can notice by the color that the latter is starting to decay; it had worms when i cleaned it.

I added an image, no. 63 that illustrates the thickness of the cap in relation to the spore baring structure.

Proposed Names

Eye3 Eyes3
Recognized by sight: this is clearly not versipelle – versipelle has orange cap. It belongs to the true “birch mushrooms”, not the “red caps” … maybe just L. scabrum, maybe L. variicolor but most probably some more rare or even mixed, I suppose with birch? If with aspen consider L. duriusculum too.
