When: 2008-10-21

Collection location: Larch Mountain, Multnomah Co., Oregon, USA [Click for map]

Who: Daniel B. Wheeler (Tuberale)

No specimen available

I admit I haven’t kept up on the ostoyae complex or the mellea complex. So I’ll just call this Armillaria and see what everyone else calls it. In nearly pure Western hemlock stand (Tsuga heterophylla).

tell what I think it looks like: Tricholoma fulvum without the yellow colours.

There is one described from the western, by A.H. Smith: Tricholoma subumbrinum, with a dirty yellowish brown, “subconical” cap. I have no idea what it should look like. People who have access to Mycologia vol.36, could check the description.

Is it really an Armillaria?
I would have guessed Tricholoma of some kind..
