Observation 69971: Tylopilus felleus (Bull.) P. Karst.

When: 2011-06-22

Collection location: Promised Land State Park, Pennsylvania, USA [Click for map]

Who: I. G. Safonov (IGSafonov)

No specimen available

Growing on a decaying log in mixed woods.

Tasted extremely bitter — I chewed a tiny morsel and immediately felt the bitterness at the tip of my tongue that lingered around for a good 10-15 minutes.

This is a young specimen, almost a button, measuring 3 inches in height. Note the unusual reticulation gradient: a smooth progression from a conventional net-like and flat pattern on the bottom of the stipe to a deeply convoluted, raised and intricate matrix at the top.
