Observation 13068: Tricholoma (Fr.) Staude

When: 2008-10-23

Collection location: Forest near Elgin St., Pembroke, Ontario, Canada [Click for map]

Who: Paul Derbyshire (Twizzler)

No specimen available

Fibrous-looking grey cap, long white stipe with yellowish area (ring zone?), and white notched gills.

The latter and fibrous cap point toward Tricholoma.

There were a few of these scattered about a small area, in moss under Eastern white pine. The photographs are of two specimens — first photo is of a mature mushroom and the subsequent three are of a younger one less than half as wide.

Fifth photo taken in the same area Nov. 6.
