Collection location: Farm, Barrier-Georgeville Rd., Cabarrus Co., North Carolina, USA [Click for map]
Very abundant and deer don’t seem to eat them. Found mostly covered under 4"-8" loblolly pine straw of a dense 4 acre pine stand. Spores appear white. Pileus is sticky/slimy when wet and dries smooth with the skin separating easily. Flesh is firm. Stipe is sturdy and does not break easily. Some of the larger had split the stipe under the pine-duff trying to push through limbs and vines. When broken manually stipe sections curl, (see photos). Odor is ‘clean’ like the same pine woods but with a slight sweetness. Taste is same with texture of the chew ending as ‘creamy’.
