do anything further, these did not come home with me. I had no idea what I would find up at that elevation. Of the 300 pictures I took, two things came home with me and I wasn’t entirely positive what those were. I learned a lot about Tricholoma though! I don’t think I’d ever said that word before yesterday.

Check the odor of these, please. T. magnivelare has some lookalikes which do not smell like cinnamon.

by delicious highly prized mushrooms and I didn’t even know it. Next year, next year!

Pinus contorta

are most of the smallest understory trees in your last 2 photos: unusual at that elevation, but still found at higher elevation than that in Oregon. P. contorta is one of the favorite host trees of T. magnivelare in my experience, but Arora also mentions Canyon live oak, madrone, Douglas-fir and Western hemlock. Usually Douglas-fir is old-growth to host T. magnivelare.

Lots of pine

I will post a picture of the trees in that area.
The dirt was heavy with large chunks of dried sap. I found Tricholoma magnivelare within 30ft of these.

How about nearby tree species?

I’d guess the log is very old Lodgepole pine which has lost its bark, and possibly one smaller seedling in the background of the second photo looks to be Lodgepole as well. Am I correct? If Lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta) then these could well be very very old T. magnivelare. The browning reaction on some of the gills and stipe I have seen on some of the extremely aged T. magniverlare, but only on material so old as to be far from collectible.

A cross between Tricholoma magnivelare & Tricholoma focale.
The odor might help on this one.
