When: 2009-06-03
Who: hríb
No herbarium specimen

Notes: I saw this mushroom growing off the side of a trail in the dirt. It had a pungent scent. This is not a strictly scientific observation, but it reminds me of a squashed Goomba – go Mario!

I added images to show the aging after 3 days. The mushroom still stinks. Were this thing to sit down next to me on a bus, I would politely excuse myself and jump out a window.

I agree with Mycowalt based on the photos in North American Boletes by Bessette, Roody & Bessette. Xanthoconium affine has yellower pores than Gyroporus castaneus and is a more slender and delicate fungus.
