Observation 81780: Tricholoma intermedium Peck

When: 2011-10-27

Collection location: Betty’s Field, Crescent, North Carolina, USA [Click for map]

Who: Matt Sherman (Shermanii)

No specimen available

Growing from soil in a mossy area on the edge of a small stand of Pinus virginiana.

5% KOH reaction on pileus – dark red
5% KOH reaction on stipe – no reaction

These are small compared to the other ones I have found this fall.
I found these in the very same spot last year, but they were larger.

It seems (to me) to be the most common Tricholoma in my area so far.
I’ve found it multiple times in three different places in Rowan county and they seem to always grow in mixed or predominantly pine woods under Pinus virginiana. They seem to “like” to grow in or around moss as well.
