Collection location: Mountaintop, Pennsylvania, USA [Click for map]

Who: Dave W (Dave W)

Specimen available

Group of about 20 fruit bodies on a lawn under Norway spruce (no other trees). Caps are wet from a rain shower.

Post mature specimens. I collected/preserved these because the habitat is different than the usual forested spots where I find this type mushroom.


Blue staining in cap context was more prominent than what appears in this photo. Also, nearly all of the context in the stipe was tinged red.
Top row ammonia, bottom KOH. Sequence: cap surface, cap context, stipe surface.
~14-16 × 5-6.
