When: 2008-03-15

Collection location: Ti Bar Fire Station, Siskiyou Co., California, USA [Click for map]

Who: John Harlan (harlanx6)

No specimen available

I need help with this one. Cap 6 cm, stipe 6 cm tall, stipe rosy to cream, tapering 2 cm @ base to 1.5 cm @ cap.
Growing under Douglas Firs.
Taste very slightly acrid, with acridity disappearing quicky.
Smell hard to identify, but you could say kind of seafoody.
More odor and less acridity that local specimens of R. cremoricola.
Gills uniformly off-white even with magnifying glass.
