Observation 75198: Clitocybe
When: 2011-08-28
No herbarium specimen

Notes: What a terrible specimen. Still, I wanted this to have an eternal home at MO with the hope that maybe, just maybe, someone will put a name on it. The exact odor of cheap black pepper, the flaky kind you’d get in a cheap diner.

Spores globose to subglobose, warted and inamyloid (I noticed a blue tinge to them in both KOH and Melzer’s, but it could have just been refraction).

Found in mixed conifer forest (Lodgepole Pine, Spruce, Fir) at ~9500 ft.

Collected for the 4th Annual Eagle Mushroom Festival

Do you have a better guess?

Amanita muscaria? You must be drunk.
