They were pale buff and fit M. juncea as in Roody page 429. They were abundant along a small stream under broadleaf and hemlock trees. But I really did not look at them closely as there were so many fungi to see that weekend…
but I remember them being white in real life. They were under dense shade and at the time the photos looked fine, but this morning I used the ‘automatic correct’ to brighten the contrast. I fear this may have pitched things toward the yellow…, unfortunately, the photos are also poorly focused, so I am not sure what the hymenium looks like on this one – or the western species either. We need a shot of both through the dissecting scope! Sorry I can’t clarify the color issue. They do look yellow here.
are there maybe a couple of different species traveling under the same name?
the western version that I am familiar with is much more pale, and the hymenium more clearly delimited…
