No specimen available

Found under spruce in a location that shall not be named (the GPS is in the right park but that’s it).

The reticulation is actually white if you can get past the dirt. White flesh. No staining. Buff pores age yellow. Very firm flesh. No particular taste except maybe a vague sweetness that could be my imagination. Stipe is very rough and textured. The reticulation is there, but hard to see.

White mycelium. No chemical tests performed because I’ll be damned if I’m wasting a piece!

Photos taken indoors under artificial lighting. The underlying paper is a bright white envelope.

Species Lists


Look carefully and you can see that the netting is white. It is actually raised by a good bit, giving the stipe a very rough texture.

It was actually a new spot.

I was wandering around looking for spruce, and there they were.

As to the season, I also saw the first Cantharellus minor of the year. There’s a spot where it comes up every Spring & we use it as a sort of time marker. The past three years it came up in mid-June, which more experienced locals tell me is a week or so earlier than it used to come up. This year it’s June 5. So that’s about where we are in the season.

Its just as good

To me its every bit as good tasting as what has been called B. edulis here. Enjoy it its one of my favorites.

If anyone says subcaerulescens I smack ’em.

for me to start checking spots. Scott, your corner of Earth tends to run about a week ahead on mine.
