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:
Similar to N. sericea in Helene M.E. Schalkwijk-Barendsen’s Mushrooms of Northwest North America, p. 290. Sericea refers to a Chinese word meaning silky. Indeed the cap does look like raw brown silk, at least to me. There is a curious white edge to the base of the gills which is not mentioned, though. Growing in sanddune conditions, probably associated with either Lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta) or Scotchbroom.
