Observation 29922: Rhizopogon occidentalis Zeller & C.W. Dodge

This specimen was found in grass under Pinus (most likely non-native), shortly following a rain. I’ve suggested that is is R. occidentalis due to its medium size (4-6cm), yellow peridium accompanied by reddish rhizomorphs, and the fact that it stained pinkish brown when broken.

Included is a section made of the interior, demonstrating internal spore producing cavities lined with gastroid basidia.
