When: 2009-02-26

Collection location: Parque Nacional Tierra del Fuego, Tierra del Fuego, Argentina [Click for map]

Who: Jason Hollinger (jason)

No specimen available

Sorry, this was too large to collect — I was still holding out for possibly finding an Amanita later!

I found this several times, but only this one was quite so huge; CAP viscid when very young, glabrous, opening to nearly plane; GILLS brown, not or barely notched; STIPE very long and extending under ground quite some distance (never did successfully dig one up completely), white, dry; SPORES rusty brown (visible all over the ground under this one); VEIL cortina (not so visible on this one, but obvious on younger ones); OTHER quite a pleasant odor remniscent of Boletus edulis — very distinctive.
