Who: Debbie Drechsler (debdrex)

No specimen available

Notes:
Pileus: minutely velvety, dark reddish brown when young and convex when young, aging to pale pinkish beige with a darker umbo and plane, breaking into small scales. Interesting striation kind of reminds me of a sand dollar.
Gills: creamy white, close, slightly decurrent, notched.
Stipe: white, wider at base, reminiscent of a russula stipe in texture.
Spores white, taste bitter, associated with douglas fir, bay, oak.
