Observation 98699: Tylopilus minor Singer
When: 2012-06-21
No herbarium specimen

Notes: These were found in the Hickory Creek Savannah Unit.
Only got a trace spore print but the spores were in the range of 8.9-10.0 X 3.9-5.0 microns.
The closest match seems to be T. minor based on colors, spore size, and some did seem to have a pale reticulum.
Taste was bitter.

I found permethrin (permanone), which you may have heard of, to be very effective against these tiny pests (make sure to spray your socks, too!). It is also quite effective against larval and nymphal ticks.

I. G., not everything is big for sure..

One needs a Haz-Mat suit to avoid the relentless, invisible chiggers. That would be a problem in 100 degree weather and similar humidity.

I thought everything was big in Texas. :-)
