Notes: A pair of specimens were growing in pine duff around trunk of mostly cut-down grey pine tree. Extensive mycelium recovered in both.
Pileus buff color, dry, smooth w/some shallow fissures ~ 11 cm x 11 cm. Second specimen was larger: pileus 14 cm. Tubes, ~0.5 cm length, looked yellow but brown surface mostly…can’t distinguish dirt vs. age. Pileux context yellow cream blueing instantly on cutting, but not proceeding very extensively, ie limited blueing but fast.
Stipe yellow cream color, slightly reddish toward base, 5 cm long, 2-4 cm diameter and curved, widest in middle, narrowing toward base.
Taste was mild, unoffensive, and not peppery or acrid.
Macrochemical tests: Ammonia caused no reaction on pileus surface or context. 4% KOH caused slow formation of light/medium brown color on pileus surface and changed pileus context from yellow cream to mustard yellow.
