PNW stinkers

Thanks for your comment. I’d like to add that observation 81828 (“what you’ve been calling T. inamoenum”) and observation 57804 (“a good example of the PNW T. sulphureum”) were found in the same place (Camp Magruder) at the same time in two consecutive years. I would bet they are the same thing. If we find it/them again this year, we’ll preserve it.

I agree, Noah

Your choice of slender stinkers look different from the european inamoenum. Too white and too skinny.

A problem

is I think we have more species in the PNW of these stinky Trichs then we have names for (not that the EU names should be applied here).

This is what I have been calling T. inamoenum

It’s one of the most common fall mushrooms on the far north coast of CA.

And good examples of the PNW T. sulphureum
