Notes:
A single, beautiful fruiting body of B. edulis var grandedulis directly beneath Western hemlock. Light pinkish red tones on cap, perfect reticulation at apex of stem(white), bulbous stem base, mycorrhizal with conifers-especially pine and fir(NOT OAK).

I have been monitoring the nearby abundant fruiting of Amanita muscaria subs. flavivolvata(within feet of this porcini) for over a month now. I always am on the look out for porcini whenever I encounter large groupings of A. muscaria. Nice to have this association of species as indicators confirmed yet again this season. Other personally confirmed/documented associations of species with this location(between the same two hemlock and Doug fir) are Suillus caerulescens with Gomphidious subroseus and Chalciporus piperatus with Amanita muscaria subs. flavivolvata. A ton of mycorrhizal activity in this mature, 2nd growth conifer dominant habitat.

Elevation: Sea level.

Added images of the collected B. edulis var grandedulis and A. muscaria subs. flavivolvata together for size and comparison of fruiting occurrence and proximity to one another(within 20 feet of each other-directly beneath the W. hemlock).

So glad you got the samples safe and sound! I am always willing to send samples of species from my ongoing(and ever expanding) home herbarium. Happy holiday season 2017!
