Observation 14730: Gloeophyllum saepiarium

Arora states this has rusty-brown gills, but this is misleading, at least for my specimen. This had bright white gills when fresh, but turned instantly rusty-brown after handling. The bruising reaction was so quick that I couldn’t catch it on film, although I tried. By the time my fingernail left the spore-bearing surface, it had already changed color.

[admin – Sat Aug 14 02:04:29 +0000 2010]: Changed location name from ‘Paul Bishop’s Jones Creek Tree Farm, Clackamas Co., OR’ to ‘Paul Bishop’s Jones Creek Tree Farm, Beavercreek, Oregon, USA’
