Base of stipe boring

I generally include a photo of it if it’s interesting in some way (warts, cup, bulb) or if the specimen is an Amanita. If I didn’t include it here, there was probably nothing special to see. :)

but adnate to adnexed gills might also suggest Melanoleuca.

But Tricholoma does grow in that area this time of year. Last year there was T. pessundatum and T. flavovirens and unidentified white-to-grey trichs. This year I haven’t seen any T. flavovirens, except maybe for one a couple weeks ago in Zone 01 about a half-klick from this obs.

and white gills suggest Tricholoma. Did you get a spore print?
