Collection location: Lower Trenta Valley, East Julian Alps, Posočje, Slovenia [Click for map]
Habitat: mixed wood, Picea abies and Ostrya carpinifolia dominant trees; both trees near the fruit bodies; slightly inclined mountain slope, south aspect; dry and relatively warm place; calcareous, colluvial, skeletal ground; in shade; partly protected from direct rain by tree canopies; average precipitations ~ 3.000 mm/year, average temperature 7-9 deg C, elevation 650 m (2.100 feet), alpine phytogeographical region.
Substratum: forest soil, growing virtually attached to thin underground, live roots (probably of Picea abies).
Place: Lower Trenta valley, between villages Soča and Trenta, right bank of river Soča; above Strgulc abandoned farm house, Soča 47, East Julian Alps, Posočje, Slovenia EC.
Comments: About 10 pilei growing on an area of about 6 × 6 m. All examined fruit bodies were virtually attached to thin (4-8 mm in diameter) still living roots. Pilei 4.2 – 7 cm in diameter, conspicuously sticky; gills firmly attached to the hut; stipe 4 – 7 cm long and 9-16 mm in diameter, dry, fibrous, with small, whitish floccules, hollow (except the youngest fruit bodies); SP abundant, whitish, oac893. What surprises are hollow stipes of all inspected fruit bodies except with the youngest. Sources state rather the opposite for this species.
