When: 2010-11-20

Collection location: Luzerne Co., Pennsylvania, USA [Click for map]

Who: Dave W (Dave W)

No specimen available

Found along a lake shore under White Pine with oak in the vicinity. Odor nil. I tasted a bit of the context, and it was not bitter. I’ll try cooking/eating some. Other collections which I have called T. caligatum are browner, shaggier on the cap, bitter tasting, and occur in mature oak woods.
