Observation 67093: Suillus Gray
When: 2011-05-08
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Extremely large specimen(15cm cap) fruiting at forest edge beneath Doug fir and alder. Very strange time of year for Suillus to be fruiting from my experience. We usually see these in abundance with other slippery jacks from September to November at the evergreen state cllege. This specimen could very well be S. caerulescens but I unfortunately did not cut the stalk to show bluing reaction- if any. The pores on the underside of cap do “fan outward” and become elongated toward the edge of the cap indicating S. caerulescens. Slimy veil, yellowish stalk and minutely fibrillose cap.

So bummed it wasn’t an Edulis :( definitely looked promising from afar! Another oddity for the 2011 Spring season along with my B. zellerii from last week…

Temp: low 50’s, sunny.
