Observation 58258: Tricholoma caligatum (Viv.) Ricken
When: 2010-10-03
No herbarium specimen

Notes: I understand that someone is currently working on this group in the eastern US, so this will probably eventually get a new better name. I think the staining reaction will probably be distinctive.

that I have found in oak woods here in PA (infrequent) does not have much of an odor. But it tastes quite bitter.
