This specimen was very young when picked which, I think, accounts for the light color of the cap. The gill structure is consistent with others that I’ve found, so I don’t think it’s been parasitized.
My P. involutus is typically much darker in the cap, and this one looks to serrated gills. Could it have been parasitized?
I don’t still have it but will most likely find more this season. Didn’t know to try but will do so on the next one. Or try, anyway!
Clitocybe maxima gills peal from cap also makes them great for drying
but Paxillus involutus is very poisonous kills red blood cells and dameges kidneys so they say, dont eat it
..it’d be great to see a demo of the gills peeling from the cap (like its relatives, the boletes).
