Collection location: Turkey Creek Unit, Big Thicket National Preserve, Texas, USA [Click for map]

Who: Ron Pastorino (Ronpast)

No specimen available

Cap 7 cm across.
There was some slow, slight grayish blue staining of the cap flesh.
Only got a trace spore print so I stained it with Congo red to better observe the spores.
Spores ~ 8.3-11.9 X 4.2-6.9 microns, elongate and smooth.
5% KOH on cap was reddish.
Taste was mild.
Another case where I lost the patient….degraded on me before I could completely dry it.
