Description

Found under Lodgepole Pine and Limber Pine, at 9,940 ft. elevation, at Sugarloaf Peak, San Bernardino Mountains, San Bernardino County CA. It was under a dead lodgepole, but only a few feet away from Limber Pines, including three sapling Limber Pines only 3 feet away. There are no other tree species at this location. It is quite dry, with no precipitation for months. It was under a mounded layer of dry duff. No other mushrooms fruiting except one fruiting of Neolentinus ponderosus at the base of a Lodgepole Pine.
Staining on the stem was bright yellow when fresh, but darkened somewhat as it aged in transport and in refrigerator for one day. Odor mild but slightly unpleasant. Taste soapy, unpleasant. I considered Hygrophorus but the gills are not waxy feeling. The cap feels dry. When wet down, it felt very slightly viscid. The fibrils are innate in the pileus. There is no vestige of a partial veil. The gills are of ranked length. The stipe is solid and quite tough. It is similar in appearance to Tricholoma muricatum, but the taste is not farinaceous, and the season and location are different as well.
