Observation 206199: Tyromyces chioneus (Fr.) P. Karst.

When: 2015-06-04

Collection location: Tennessee, USA [Click for map]

Who: shroomguy (shroomguy)

No specimen available

I found this mushroom growing on a tree that almost seemed to be dead. I could not see any leaves growing from the tree besides leaves from the vines that were entangled around its trunk. I found it on June 4th in a wetland forest in Tennessee. This mushroom is squishy and easy to cut. The fungi was out of my reach, and I had to use a tool to cut it down. It is a bright white color and it seemed to resemble a crystal. It has pore tubes on the bottom side. This mushroom was growing by itself.
