Observation 55556: Tricholoma (Fr.) Staude

When: 2010-10-13

Collection location: Jackson Park, Atchison, Kansas, USA [Click for map]

Who: C.Wick (C.Wick)

No specimen available

We’ve collected this twice. The roots/mycelium are a vibrant rich purple in color. Unmistakable.
No idea where to begin as anything I’ve tried is only giving me purple Trichs.
This was definately attached to a root system…believe it to be the Oaks that were around the area but could possibly be Elm.
Approximately 2 1/2 inches tall for the largest. Cap was a buff/gray in color. Stem and gills pale white to grey.
White spore. No distinctive odor other then ‘mushroom’.
There are no conifers in this area of Kansas. We have a few odd cedars on edges but nothing in this area. This is mainly oaks, elms, pawpaws, maple and ash.
Both times we collected this (several weeks apart) the purple was VERY distinctive on the myclium/roots.
Any ideas?
