Not on this particular occasion, no.

As I said, on dedicated mushrooming expeditions it’s entirely another story. I routinely dig up Amanitas and the like.

You didn’t want to get your hands dirty???

Okay, I do not need to say anything here. I just can not relate.

These specimens were too beautiful to uproot.

Besides, I was on my way somewhere else and didn’t want to get my hands dirty. I might have pulled one up if I’d been on one of my dedicated mushrooming hikes instead.

Xerula have a radicating stipe. Next time try to pull one up. You’ll either end up with a really long stipe, or a broken off stipe in the log/ground, or somewhere in between.

Could be.

Wikipedia says urban areas and gills have stria extending down the stipe. This has the stria and was found in a two-square-blocks forested park in the middle of a suburb.

But I don’t know much about Xerula. Apparently they resemble trichs, but without the hairy-scaly cap?
