Observation 194049: Tylopilus rubrobrunneus Mazzer & A.H. Sm.
When: 2014-09-12
No herbarium specimen

Notes: It was found growing in soil amongst leaf litter in the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore HQ Woods, which is a black oak woodland. The broad, convex pileus is tan in color, with lighter shades at the edges of the cap, and it was smooth and dry in texture. The cap measured around 15.5 cm. The specimen did not have gills—instead it possessed a porous surface that was pink in color with brown spots, with a depth of around 1.5 cm. The stipe was reticulated and fibrillose, measuring around 7.6 cm in length. The stipe had a bulbous base that darkened in color towards the bottom, and the surface was reticulated. The fungus is bitter in taste.

Recognized by sight: I can’t see any reticulations. T. felleus is usually with conifers.

Recognized by sight: if it smells like a combination of bad b.o. and fish, when dry…gross.
