Many of the original collections of Pluteus orestes were identified in the field as Pluteus petasatus

pale colors + on conifer wood/litter + geographic location all point to P. orestes.

If you collect it again microscopic characters separate both species easily

At least now we know it is edible :)

No, this wasn’t saved.

I will recollect it if I see it again.

Both the habitat and the location suggest Pluteus orestes

Was any part of the collection saved?
