Collection location: Alpine Lake, Marin Co., California, USA [Click for map]
Another pair of Corts that I can’t put a name on.
The spores on these were somewhat small, approx. 7.1-7.9 X 4.1-5.0 microns and fairly rough.
Didn’t get any significant reactions with KOH on any parts.
They did have somewhat of an odor that wasn’t pleasant but I couldn’t describe, maybe slightly bleachy. Taste was mild.
Caps were a little sticky.
They were growing under Live Oak.

This is a very nice collection of a familiar Phlegmacium in the Purpurascens group — notice the discoloration of the gills and stem where bruised. I have seen several such collections already this Fall. This sis very good to assess their distribution and seasonality. This is the time where some iodine testing should be utilized — these do react nicely with it. Some time by Q1 next year I will put a nice reference page of all Cort collections from 2009 so that we can be on the same page.D. www.mushroomhobby.com
