Collection location: Florence, Lane Co., Oregon, USA [Click for map]

Who: Noah Siegel (Noah)

Specimen available

Here are some young S. ponderosus.. The cap is smooth or just a few appressed fibrils and very viscid and has a tendency to stain/discolor greenish. Teh veil is yellow at first and slimy; caerulescens is whitish and dry(ish) when young but it can be viscid at the stipe or cap margin. As it ages it becomes more fibrous/scaly and can dry out some. Older specimens of this and S. caerulescens can be nearly indistinguishable from each other.
