Who: Michelle M (Michelle M)

No specimen available

Believe these to be A. vernicoccora on sight. Cap striated on edges. Hollow to cottony stipe. Smell like heaven, faintly reminiscent of matsutake, oddly. Pushing up the duff in a mixed forest of mainly oak and fir at 4000 feet. Mad to try them but I know many give them a pass due to similarities to A. phalloides.
