Observation 188245: Gomphidius smithii Singer
When: 2014-11-07
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Fruiting beneath montane conifers. Fir, Western and Mountain Hemlock, spruce and Larch.

NOTE: Suillus lakei fruiting within inches of this cluster(top right in images). Nathan has requested Suillus/Gomphidius associate images and specimens prior-but this is the first visible close correlation fruiting I’ve come across.

Fruiting in dense, small cluster- not singular. Same habitat as G. glutinosus, but in clusters and blackening in age.

Elevation: 3800ft.

Temp: upper 30’s.

Recognized by sight: could be drab specimens, can’t really tell if there is yellow at the stipe base. And then there is G. subroseus var. homobasis to deal with
