Collection location: Silver Spring, Montgomery Co., Maryland, USA [Click for map]
Cap – 5 inches diameter. Yellowish cream color. One of the two caps had scales. Pileus depth 1 inch (including gills about 0.25 inch).
Stipe – 2.5 – 3 inches high, .75 inches wide,
Gills – Grey brown gills. One photo shows the depth of gills – relatively shallow.
Flesh – Sturdy – not as light as typical A. campestris I find. But breaks relatively easily, slightly less fragile than Russulas.
Spore print – dark brown. Started grayish when collected, turned to coffee cream color
Habitat – between roads on raised median in mowed grass, a few trees on the median as well. Not more than 2 feet from the road.
Spacing – two specimens, within about 18 inches of each other.
Odor could be almond or anise, not very strong, but definitely some odor.
No yellow staining/bruising in stipe or pileus cuticle
I drive by here 2-3 times per week, have not seen A. campestris on this spot before. Did see C. molybidites in this area in September
