glad to get confirmation on the name which I don’t doubt now since you and Eva are both so certain. I wasn’t aware that G. frondosa blackened too.


Does look a lot like G. frondosa

but the caps of this obs bruise black and the pores are minute. I’ve found G. frondosa once and it did not bruise and the pores were much larger.
