Observation 70788: Strobilomyces Berk.
When: 2011-07-01
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: Growing from soil in mixed woods
Trees: Liriodendron tulipifera, Fagus grandifolia, Pinus virginiana, and a younger Quercus sp.

Staining dark red when cut at apex and base of stipe.
I’m fairly certain that the flesh of the cap bruised dark red too, but I can’t say that with 100% certainty….I should have snapped a photo…..
Edit:
I actually did take a photo of the staining. I just forgot about it….
Tubes also staining red

I’ll have to look at the spores soon and we will then be able to get this to species…hopefully

no scope, no ID to species.
