Observation 81934: Leucopaxillus albissimus (Peck) Singer

When: 2011-11-08

Collection location: Jenkinson Lake, El Dorado Co., California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Ron Pastorino (Ronpast)

Specimen available

These seemed to be growing on conifer debris at ~ 3700 Ft.
The spores were amyloid and spinulose to wartty; ~ 6.0-7.0 X 4.3-5.0 microns.
They appeared to be a smaller and slightly more delicate version of Leucopaxillus albissimus. The largest one had a cap that was 8.3 cm across and the gills were mostly adnate to slightly decurrent.
I thought the odor was somewhat farinaceous and the taste was mild.
