Anyone with David Arora’s book will immediately identify this as B rubripes just like i did. I decided to confirm my identification with a taste test and to my horror it tasted good. now i have yet another mushroom that’s impossible to identify and now the mushroom is long gone. so, after a few hours i think it could be a B smithi. probably not though given that they dont grow here.
found under a conifer(i think its a spruce) in fall. since everybody’s from California and the seasons are quite different the avg. temp being 35-50 degrees at night and 55-70 in day.
very weak blue bruising.
