Another find on the way out of the office today. I find these every year, although this seems to be a little early this year. They are found each year under some pine, I’m not sure what kind, not spruce or fir, some long needle pine.

They have viscid caps, and a clear line between the dark brown and light tan parts of the stipe. The caps are still inrolled, so these are probably fairly young.

Right ouside my lab is a row of olive trees and one Ponderosa Pine. Drip irregation was added to the olive trees and the one under the canopy of the pine fruits Tricholoma fracticum.

All the collections I’ve made have been on cultivated pines surrounded by a watered lawn.
