Observation 187564: Inocybe sororia Kauffman

When: 2014-11-07

Collection location: Mount Tabor Park, Portland, Multnomah Co., Oregon, USA [Click for map]

Who: Daniel B. Wheeler (Tuberale)

No specimen available

Mount Tabor Park hosts the only dormant volcano within a major metropolitan area in the world. I happen to live at the base. Should it erupe (as did it’s neighbor Mount St. Helens in 1980) a 600 mph pyroclastic flow of super-heated steam and ash should enable me to live onward as a mere cast of my current self, much like Pompeii’s citizens.


Nearly planar cap of Inocybe sororia is water-logged, smells of green corn, and has tiny white scales on stipe under gills attachments.
