When: 2021-08-12

Collection location: Brundage Reservoir, McCall, Idaho, USA [Click for map]

Who: Joe Mat (Joe Matanzas)

No specimen available

Notes:
Collected under spruce.
Large size, 18 cms, aerolate, without scales. The cap is convex, with a sharp margin. The color is a light grey/brown with vinaceous tones, with lighter cracks.
The stipe was relatively short and off-center in this one.
The teeth, about 1 cm long, soft and fleshy and colored similar to the cap.
Flesh white, that, after a couple of minutes, turns grey with a violaceous tint (sepia, Hall).
Nodulose spores with about 14 small rounded warts. Including the ornamentation on these (8-8.5) x (7.8-8.0), Q aver= 1.06, thus almost round.
This looks like very close to Ronpast observation from Nama 2008, also from McCall, Idaho.

The main thing holding my certainty on Sarcodon cf rimosus, is that the spore size is larger than the literature I found.
