This is the quintessential Tricholoma aurantium stipe picture I have been striving for. I think it’s among the most beautiful of stipes. Orange droplets come off on your hand with handling.

Tricholoma matsutake Ito is not synonymous with Tricholoma magnivelare. Recent DNA evidence suggests it is, in face, the same as the PNW’s Tricholoma nauseosum, I believe (it’s been a few). Yet, the aroma of matsutake is specific enough to cause most people to identify by odor rather than site.
Odor, and whether it’s a nibbler or a punter… I don’t recall any particular odor, good, bad or indifferent. That doesn’t necessarily mean it didn’t have one, only that, if it did, it was not so exceptional to imprint on my mind.
…since I misidentified the “slightly orange” T. vaccinum as aurantium recently at McCall. won’t get fooled again!
I didn’t understand your statement about orange droplets, until I looked close to the cap on the stipe: there are visible orange droplets! Amazing! I’d sure like to find one of those. Did it smell nice or rotten? Or, in the vernacular of David Aurora, is it a nibbler or a punter?
