Observation 6063: Pluteus Fr.

When: 2008-01-15

Collection location: Santa Rosa, Sonoma Co., California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Debbie Drechsler (debdrex)

No specimen available

The stipe isn’t as yellow as the pictures I’ve found online, but I instantly associated it with P. cervinus in stature, although it’s quite a bit smaller, with the pileus measuring 2.4cm and the stipe 3mm across. Total height was 3.2cm. Fruiting on live oak. The pileus was velvety and, although it doesn’t show in the photo, the gills had a pinkish cast to them.

Another species to consider is P. leoninus. It has some brown tones in the cap and is a paler yellow for both the cap and stipe.
