Observation 12767: Rhizopogon Fr. & Nordholm

When: 2008-10-16

Collection location: near Cape Lookout, Tillamook Co., Oregon, USA [Click for map]

Who: Daniel B. Wheeler (Tuberale)

Specimen available

I’ve found enough Rhizopogons to recognize them on site. Normally I find Rhizopogon occidentalis in this area. This young Rhizopogon has variations. The peridium is mostly brown tones with white, and cracking to expose a white gleba; where cut peridium stains red to reddish-pink. The small portion of the mature gleba is brown. Rhizomorphs (thread or root-like structures) cover and compose a slightly fibrous, thin, nearly felt-like peridium, easily torn or eroded away. Collection being sent for identification, to be kept at Oregon State Herbarium.is
