Observation 74717: Tylopilus P. Karst.

When: 2011-08-24

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

Who: Dave W (Dave W)

No specimen available

At first I thought these were just examples of rather tall (ie. large height/diameter ratio) off color T. alboater. But now I’m thinking they’re just not black enough for alboater. Checked B/R/B and T. atratus looks like a possibility. Bruising pattern included a little tannish mixed in with the gray/black, but no reddish phase was noted. Went to the mottled dark stain within 2 minutes.
