Observation 35027: Hymenogaster sublilacinus A.H. Sm.

Notes:
This is a relatively large hypogeous mycorrhizal fungi associated with Douglas fir especially in winter and fall, although it has now been collected year-round. The odor is gaeous and unpleasant/sharp in the nose. Nonetheless, Nancy Smith–Weber reported than when a washed specimen is added to a plastic bag of cheese sticks, it flavors the cheese and gives it a “certain indefinable something”. This is not a recommended species for eating: I have eaten it once, and will never willingly do so again. It did not make me sick, throw-up, or cause nausea. However, the taste is strongly off-putting, and is usually stronger than Tuber gibbosum.
