Observation 60175: Tubaria (W.G. Sm.) Gillet

When: 2010-12-03

Collection location: San Mateo, California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Tom (LanLord)

No specimen available

Not sure what these things were, the gills were pinkish and veiny. They also had a very sweet aroma, not like maraschino cherries, but more like some kind of candy. I can’t quite put my finger on the smell, but it was good.

While they were growing in wood chips, they seem to be attached to what looked like pine needles when I pulled some up.

Would tubaria have the sweet smell?

These were growing nearby some tubaria furfuracea (spelling?) so the environment is good for that species, just not sure about the aroma.

Looks like…

Tubaria to me, but I’m unsure.
