Observation 54578: Tricholoma vaccinum (Schaeff.) P. Kumm.
When: 2010-10-02
(45.802059° -77.136877° )
No herbarium specimen

Notes: I’m not quite sure what these are. Cap top scaly-fibrillose reminiscent of a trich, but with hints of zonation. Gills mildly decurrent, brittle suggesting Russulaceae. Looks more like Lactarius than like Russula, but attempts to elicit latex didn’t seem to work. There is an odd whitish material clinging to the gills but it doesn’t look fluid. Dried latex from an earlier point in time?

Found in Zone 48 (mixed w/ mature aspen).
