Observation 31375: Tricholoma (Fr.) Staude

When: 2008-12-31

Collection location: Pepperwood Preserve, Santa Rosa, California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Debbie Drechsler (debdrex)

No specimen available

Last year I found some of these in the same spot and had no idea what they were. I posted to this site (Observation 6095). Doug Smith suggested either T. sejunctum or sulphureum. However, when I went to confirm that after this most recent find, I found that T. sejunctum is listed as having white gills, which these mushrooms definitely don’t have. It absolutely does not have a sulphur-like or coal tar smell. In fact, it smells a bit like the green corn smell of some Inocybes. So, does anyone have any idea of what it might be? I wasn’t able to get a spore print on this one but last year’s model gave a white print. Oh, and the pileus is 9.5cm across, stipe at apex is 2cm, and 13cm long. It was fruiting with Live oak.
