Observation 13082: 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

Brown cap, white gills, and pale stem; notched gill attachment; low to the ground — looks like a trich.

Most were in a patch of moss at the edge of a stand of jack pine. The first three photos are of one of these. There were at least half a dozen, looking much like in the first photo, basically buried in the moss.

At least one was outside the moss patch, in the sandy soil surrounding it, half-buried in that instead. The fourth and fifth photos show this one. The differences in appearance seem entirely explainable as a result of the sand. Particularly, the gills and upper stem look more or less the same (compare 3rd and 5th photos).
