Observation 81626: Tricholoma caligatum group

When: 2011-11-06

Collection location: Saleeby-Fischer YMCA, Rockwell, North Carolina, USA [Click for map]

Who: Matt Sherman (Shermanii)

Specimen available

Two growing in mixed but predominantly pine woods.

The smell of the cap was like that of some of the large, white Lepidellas that I find in the same area, (I call the smell of these Lepidellas “offensive” hehe.) The smell was not as “offensive” as in the Lepidellas but very similar…if that makes sense.
When I cut the mushroom in half, the smell of the flesh was actually kind of nice. Not at all like the outer layer of the pileus.

Flesh is thick and white.

KOH has no reaction on pileus or stipe.

Spore print: White

I can’t wait to put it under the scope. I haven’t looked at a Tricholoma under the scope before…not that I can think of anyway.
