Observation 5630: Tricholoma manzanitae T.J. Baroni & Ovrebo

When: 2007-12-23

Collection location: Foothill Regional Park, Windsor, California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Debbie Drechsler (debdrex)

No specimen available

This seems an unlikely ID in oak woodland. It was already free so I have no idea where it actually fruited. Found at the edge of the park near homes, so it might have been carried? If there’s something more appropriate to the surroundings, I was unable to find it. Pileus was 9.5cm across, and the stipe was 2.4cm at the apex and 4cm tall.
T. manzanitae is a good fit, I think. Thanks, Nathan.

Doesn’t look yellow enough to me

Could be the photos, but I’m used to seeing a bit more intense a yellow in T. flavovirens. Also the stature doesn’t seem quite right. The stature seems more like T. manzanitae.
