Collection location: Cascades along Highway 12, Lewis Co. and Yakima Co., Washington, USA [Click for map]
Fruiting at approximately 2,800ft. beneath Douglas fir, Pacific silver fir, Mountain hemlock and Larch.
Temp: low 50’s, sunny.
The rhizomorphs at the base are almost prism like and make small star spires of hyphae. C.glacialis has a thick primordial looking base that is fluffy, smooth. More shiny, silvery appearance to cap with C.glacialis than the zoned, duller cap of C.albirhiza.
C.glacialis mycelium looks almost like a “puddle” at the base-especially more mature specimens when the stem elongates. C.albirhiza mycelium is thread like, or somewhat spiny(spike clusters of hyphae).
Note: The sun was setting and caught just the margin of the larger fruiting body. Gills appear pinkish, almost orange in young specimens.
Some species of small nats were infesting the gills and margin.
