Observation 9731: Gymnomyces vesiculosa Coker & Couch

Collected during the 2003 Oregon Mycological Society’s Fall Mushroom Forage at Camp Macgruder, Tillamook Co., OR. G. vesiculosa is a species I have been collecting on the Oregon coast (Tillamook County) for the past 15 years or so. The gleba is distinctively off-white to bright yellow, eventually aging (if not eaten first) to a light tan. The odor is pleasant, fruity, and very enticing to me. While I haven’t eaten this species … yet … I want to try it at least twice or 3 timees. One of the most distinctive features that I’ve notices is a hyaline (transluscent) crenulated (wrinkled) base, often with some warts near the base as well. Sometimes there is an actual stem running through the gleba. This fungus is usually barely erumpent in humus, or epigeous in gravelled walkways or trails.
