When: 2007-01-07

Collection location: Los Trancos Preserve, Palo Alto, California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Douglas Smith (douglas)

No specimen available

Notes:
Easy to tell what these are from the smell, very chemical, kinda like scented soap. The scent is always the same, even if the look of the mushroom is always different.

I saw the largest one ever at the Fungus Fed. Santa Cruz setup for the fair the other night. Stipe was over a foot long, and the cap was 10-12 in across or more. Didn’t know it could get that big, but there it was…
