Observation 55420: Cystoderma fallax A.H. Sm. & Singer

When: 2010-10-10

Collection location: Southeastern Gifford Pinchot National Forest, Washington, USA [Click for map]

Who: Sava Krstic (sava)

No specimen available

Matches the description of C. fallax, except for the awfully bad odor, which would be impossible to miss. I had to keep the wax bag with it closed, it’s such a stinker. I wish I could describe this odor.


Found several miles from the place where Obs. 55420 was collected. This time, there was no trace of the foul smell.

I’m still puzzled by the strong odor that is not mentioned in the descriptions I checked.
