Observation 24736: Tricholoma caligatum group
When: 2009-08-25
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Found these guy a while later after finding T magnivelare. I thought them the same but these ones appear a bit smaller and darker brown. After taking them home I took a taste of them and they where very bitter. They have no distinctive Odor. I looked on Mushroomexpert.com thinking they where possibly a Catathelesma sp. Directed me to this name T. caligatum for this species. Now this has got me wondering the two that I found with in two miles of each other One was growing under pine the other under Oak. Im wondering if they are both the same species and maybe, just maybe the substrate and tree that they are growing under may have something to do with taste and size. This would be a good one to do DNA on
