Observation 205000: Cantharocybe gruberi (A.H. Sm.) H.E. Bigelow & A.H. Sm.
When: 2015-05-21
(44.4603° -121.6411° 914m)
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Found in mixed Ponderosa pine – fir forest. Two specimens were found within the same week, both on the ground (but there is lots of buried wood in the area). White spore print. Strong scent, but not of anise, as described for Lentinus, which we were originally thinking this was.

Used references: Our foray group thought this was a Lentinus, but we couldn’t decide on which one, so I posted it to a Facebook mushroom ID group and was pointed to C. gruberi (and Mushroom Observer) by Christian Schwarz
