Growing solo under live oaks. It had been raining when I collected it, but the cap still seems especially viscid. Cap is shallowly striate. Cap dries black.

Logan, you have really been finding some interesting stuff, especially in the Boletaceae and Amanitaceae. Sweet!!

Great name!

A potential mascot for one of the LA oil and gas giants!?

The voucher material for this observation has been accessioned in our herbarium.

The striations run close to but less than half way to the center. It’s dried and set aside for you.

Hope you’re well!

I’ve never seen anthracina in this gooey state.

I think we’ve never extracte DNA from anthracina. It would be worth another try if there’s enough material.

Very best,


Can you tell me the ration of the marginal striations to the radius of the cap?
