I ate half of the medium sized mushroom. It was very tasty and caused no stomach upset. Again, these were very young, firm specimens. When I cut the fruitbody in half and made slices, there was significant latent yellow staining at the edge of the pileus. Raw, these mushrooms had a spicy odor, reminiscent according to Debbie, of matsutake.

Thanks David!

I know these prefer high elevations, but was simply curious as to the elevation since I have found them at less than 400 feet.
