Comments: Tapinella atrotomentosa is a cosmopolitan, relatively common species. Yet it is not frequently seen in my region. It is a striking, interesting mushroom with its large, mostly dark brown, velvety pileus and primarily by its thick, almost black and coarsely velvety stipe. Latin word ‘atrotomentosus’ translates to “black-haired”. Nothing similar exists in our woods, therefore determination isn’t difficult. In this observation it was growing solitary; pileus dimensions 16 × 12 cm, stipe 5 cm long and 3 cm thick; flesh thick, brittle; SP light-ocher, oac814.
