Observation 162060: Gymnopilus P. Karst.

When: 2014-03-23

Collection location: Joaquin Miller Park, Oakland, Alameda Co., California, USA [Click for map]

Who: thiotimoline

No specimen available

Notes:
Growing on fallen conifer; based on the leafier bits (which I couldn’t get close to or see very well) I think it may have been cypress. Pronounced green staining, though with slow onset. Intense bitter taste, but pleasant sweet-savory odor.
