Observation 179387: Pluteus salicinus group

When: 2014-09-17

Collection location: Geauga Cty, Ohio, USA [Click for map]

Who: Hashfinger

No specimen available

Notes:
Very quickly stains blue upon handling. This is the fourth fruit I found on a well-decayed Maple log in my family’s sugar bush. I believe it to be either an entirely “natural” fruiting of the same species I found in mulch a few weeks ago (http://mushroomobserver.org/175635?q=2C6S6), or a different species altogether. I say this because the bruising happened so quickly on these guys, whilst the mulch collection took awhile. Maybe just a potency factor due to habitat, who knows.
