Observation 73777: Chalciporus piperatus (Bull.) Bataille

When: 2011-08-10

Collection location: Luzerne Co., Pennsylvania, USA [Click for map]

Who: Dave W (Dave W)

No specimen available

The peppery taste, although present, was not prominent. We had 4.5 inches of rainfall during a 12 hour period last Saturday… and another 0.5-1 inch yesterday. I think the excessive moisture is messing with the smell/taste features on some of the boletes. Several small patches under Blue Spruce.
