The underside of this species (when fresh) will turn wine-red if rubbed with the thumb. There is one case in the literature of a teenager mowing a lawn who popped one or more of these raw and suffered a whole body paralysis lasting less than an hour. He could not be folded to be put in the car to be taken to the hospital. Apparently recovery was complete.
This species occurs often in my lawn. The only nearby mycorrhizal tree is a pin oak. However, I’ve never tried to trace the mycelium.
any nearby trees/shrubs?
