Observation 51244: Tricholoma (Fr.) Staude

When: 2010-08-11

Collection location: Fraser Experimental Forest, Grand Co., Colorado, USA [Click for map]

Who: Ron Pastorino (Ronpast)

No specimen available

Non amyloid white spores measuring ~ 5.8-6.2 X 4.2-4.8 microns. It had a mildly farinaceous odor. The cap, however, seemed relatively dry for this species.
Looking at my notes and the photos, these do seem to have some bluing on the stipe. The spores also are a good match for T. resplendens as well as some of the other features.
