This was found in a mixed conifer/oak forest at an elevation of 4700 ft. Trees within a 100 ft. radius included cedar, a 3 needled pine probably ponderosa pine, douglas fir, and black oak. It differs from typical A. aprica by it’s pallid cap color. Dimitar Bojantchev suggests in his web site “Mushroom Hobby” that lack of color can be attributed to growing in a an environment lacking sunlight. The 150 to 200 fruit bodies found in this area were pushing themselves out of the soil still covered by by a thick layer of soil and duff.


The frosty layer of UV remnant was wiped off to show pallid color of cap.
