Observation 8965: Rhizopogon Fr. & Nordholm

When: 2006-10-16

Seen at: Portland, Multnomah Co., Oregon, USA [Click for map]

Who: Daniel B. Wheeler (Tuberale)

No specimen available

Displayed at the 2006 Oregon Mycological Society Fall Mushroom Show, World Forestry Center, Portland, OR. I believe this was found and displayed by the well-known truffle hunter Adrian Beyerle. If so, it probably is stored at the OSU Herbarium, but I still don’t know when the specimen was found. To my eye, it looks like a very immature (except for the colored center portion) of R. occidentalis, with white to yellowish rhizomorphs on the peridium.
