I didn’t ask him about getting things sequenced for free, but I’m sure it will come up at whatever the next event in the spring is.

Pulk, have you gotten in touch with Steve Roberts of the Cumberland Plateau Mycoflora Project? You could potentially get this and other interesting specimens sequenced for free through that.

there probably has been some ongoing confusion regarding these viscid Hygrophorus with the brownish disc on the whitish ground color. Seems like a potentially useful project for someone.

Plenty of oak here.

Yeah, frequency in Quebec doesn’t mean much to me several hundred miles south.

Hesler & Smith 1963… which is the only external source CdQ cites… say “odor and taste mild”. Weird.

lists H. roseibrunneus as an oak associate, and says it’s rare. (Of course, “rare” may apply regionally and/or seasonally.) C du Q says the smell/flavor is sweet.

WM of ENA says roseibrunneus associates with a variety of trees, both hardwoods and conifers, but emphasizes oak. Widely distributed. Taste/odor reported as not distinctive. Cap is described as “agglutinated-fibrillose, especially near the margin.”

MO has considered H. roseibrunneus…

to be only a California species for some reason. I’ve found that in CA many many times and would have immediately called this that if I’d found it there. The macro description in Hesler & Smith matches, and it lists specimens from FL, MI, and TN, as well as CA.

H. arbustivus is supposed to be European; H. tennesseensis has a mealy smell and bitter taste (this species has none).
