Doesn’t surprise me, it looks like it just opened (there are still a few threads attached). Probably the gills aren’t dropping many spores yet.
where in Europe Chroogomphus could be rare.. I can speak for Scandinavia, where Chroogomphus rutilus is common – even abundant in calcareous areas.
Perhaps, that is true, on Chroogomphus, but where is the evidence of black spores on the veil? Usually on the veiled Chroogomphus, the fibrous veil is dark black from spores. Unless I am missing something? Do these have black spores? (What is the spore color anyway?)
Also, from people around here, it seems like Chroogomphus is rare species. Is that true, that Chroogomphus are rarely found in Europe? They are fairly common in California, in places where Suillus are found.
signs of a cobwebby partial veil. Lower left picture.
that was a cute one, growing with Dryas..?
I have never seen anything like it. Do you have any idea about spore colour?
