Photographed at the 2003 Oregon Mycological Society Fall Mushroom Show, World Forestry Center, Portland, OR. When an OMS Herbarium tag is present, a voucher collection is available. This is one of the first mycorrhizal species I cultivated. I had already obtained a seedling birch which I planted on the corner of my house. After seeing Paxillus involutus, and learning it was both poisonous, and a common mycorrhizal fungus with birch, I asked if I could have a mushroom to try growing it with. I took the mushroom home, planted pieces of it near the root zone of my birch seedling, and the very next year I had poisonous mushrooms in my yard, about 8 feet away from my birch tree!
