Notes:
Fruiting in alder and coniferous bark mulch beneath Oregon grape and other decorative shrubs. Odor is distinctly fishy but reminds me exactly of the tiny, pink marshmallow cakes that I used to use for fishing when I was a kid. Fishy, but with an almost drying paint quality. Once dried the smell completely changes to cucumber or watermelon terpene profile. Gills are yellowish in the field(when wet) then become bright pink and uniform upon drying.

Stems are black and somewhat dusty in appearance, when dry.

Elevation: Sea level.

Kept a few for my home herbarium/later study and microscopy. Have to get a few shots of those amazing, huge Cystidia!
