Observation 9955: Hypomyces lactifluorum (Schwein.) Tul. & C. Tul.

Observed at the 2002 Oregon Mycological Society Fall Mushroom Show, World Forestry Center, Portland, Multnomah Co., OR. NOTE: herbarium tag says 2001, but actual date was 2002. This is the famous, very edible (when young and fairly dry) Lobster Mushroom. I don’t think it tastes like lobster. But it does have an aroma similar to seafood, maybe a mild crab.
