and more robust that the typical tarda fruit body. But I’ve seen a few like this in the past. The first time I noticed them in my backyard, there was also a troop of Blewits growing under a douglas fir a few yards away. Thinking they were all Blewits, I made one collection. When preparing them to eat, I noticed some of the gills looked different, and the stipes seemed thin. I separated out the tarda, but ate them anyway. Similar to the Blewits.

that chunky specimen is cool!

I’m used to seeing them as slender floppy things.
