Observation 59420: Tylopilus felleus (Bull.) P. Karst.
When: 2010-11-19
No herbarium specimen

Notes: 11-19-10
Rowan Co., NC

Found alone, growing from soil, in mixed, predominantly pine, forest.
-Virginia Pine, (young) Maple

4cm broad, brown, convex, smooth, dry, margin curved inward
Flesh is creamy, soft and slightly staining brown where touched

White to creamy, .3cm deep, small and circular

7.6-8cm long, 3.8cm wide at base, 1.3cm wide at apex, creamy to white with brown net-like reticulations, club shaped, quickly enlarging from apex to base, dry
Flesh is white and soft

Old fungoid ?

It wasn’t good, that’s for sure. It kind of made my tongue tingle.
I guess you could call it bitter.

Spore Print:
I printed it for two days and it did not produce.

I thought this to possibly be Tylopilus felleus.
Although I’m really not sure.
Any thoughts or suggestions are welcome.
