Collection location: Thoiry, France [Click for map]

Who: Douglas Smith (douglas)

Specimen available

Found under oak, hornbeam, beech, some fir near by.

Cap viscid, stipe non-viscid, cap yellow-brown to bronze, with veil fragments, gills pallid, stipe white, bulb white, veil white, cap red in KOH, context and bulb non-reactive in KOH.

micro-shot of veil at 1000x in KOH. Spores ellipsoid, somewhat pointed, warted, brown, Apr. size 11 × 6 um.

Brought these into the SMG meeting, and people didn’t know what to call them. Most agreed they were not C. calochrous, which were found near by. Didn’t find anything in the Champions du Suisse tome 5 for these, but did find the name C. dalecarlicus in the Funga Nordica key, which seems like a pretty good match to the description.
