Observation 6787: Hebeloma (Fr.) P. Kumm.
When: 2007-12-09
No herbarium specimen

Notes: These were brought into the bio 800 class at SFSU, a couple of the students had bopped up to Mendocino for the weekend to look for things. These were fairly large, stipes 10-15 cm long, caps 7-10 cm in diameter. The surface of the caps were viscid, the stipes fibrous, with a number of them splitting lengthwise. The smallest cap displayed evidence of a fibrous veil, and there were fibers on the stipe on the larger ones, probably from a veil.

The odor on these were interesting, there was a raphanoid odor, but also some kinda of fruity odor. Almost like a fruit chews candy like odor, but some non-defined sweet fruit.

I believe these were written up by a student and put in the herbarium.
