Observation 13438: Tricholoma (Fr.) Staude

When: 2008-11-01

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

Who: Daniel B. Wheeler (Tuberale)

No specimen available

Notes:
The Tricholoma part of the identification of this specimen is the easy part. Cap covered in reddish-brown fibrils, with pale yellow-green flesh underneath. Gills are yellowish, similar to T. equestre. Stipe is widest at ground level, tapering as shown in photos. Odor of green corn. When I first found this, most of the cap was underground, and I could only see the fibrous cap, which looked partially nibbled on. I was hoping this would be a new Rhizopogon species for me, but instead all I got was this dirty Trich.
