Collection location: Edgewood Blue, Wells Gray region, British Columbia, Canada [Click for map]

Who: Jason Hollinger (jason)

Specimen available

I’ve found this twice now, both times on trails on dry mountain sides with spruce, pine, and a few scattered birch/aspen. Probably associated with spruce. It is small; the cap is distinctly tacky (possibly viscid when moist?); stalk nice and smooth; pores a bit yellowish; flesh staining faintly yellowish; spore print yellowish brown; no odor.
