Who: Paul Derbyshire (Twizzler)

No specimen available

In Zone 19 under pines and quite close to the border with Zone 18. There were a few more scattered. Oddly absent from Zone 15, a more usual location for it, but at its usual time of year. There were Cystoderma amianthinum nearby (and a few feet north, Cantharellula umbonata and Laccaria sp. in the more open, mossy Zone 18).

I agree. Does look yellow (or at least yellowish) on the monitor in my office. Maybe my home computer monitor tends to lighten the color yellow. I’ll look again when I’m at home.

Actually, I made a collection of this type mushroom a few days ago which showed very pale yellow gills. The photo in the linked obs shows it as paler than what i recall actually seeing first hand. So I guess I’m just wondering about how yellow should the gills be for this type mushroom?

Maybe it’s just your monitor…

…because they sure look yellow to me, including on this page.

Maybe it’s just the lighting…

But the gills seem to lack the yellow color associated with T. flavovirens. Collections I have made (of what I’ve IDed as such) have shown variable shades of yellow on the gills, with occasional greenish tints.
