Observation 25971: Gomphus floccosus (Schwein.) Singer
When: 2009-09-28
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Perhaps the most atypical G. floccosus I have ever seen. Found growing from an old-growth Douglas fir stump about 4 feet diameter nearly rotted away, in the northern Oregon coast area. Stipes both 5.5-6 inches long, and arising from nearly the same location within the stump. Slight ridges observed directly under the cap. A hole leading into the interior of the stipe. Compared odor, size, and coloration with a nearby G. floccosus found near the same locale on the same day.
