Sulphur Knight

Tricholoma sulphureum

Description:

Growing in deciduous area. I think it had a mealy taste but not sure. I'd have to check again. 'Flaxton' on WAB thinks this is T. sulphureum: http://www.wildaboutbritain.co.uk/forums... . According to wikipedia T. equestre , T. sulphureum, T. auratum, and T. aestuans are all similar: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tricholoma_... . T. equestre has a sticky cap, white flesh, thin crowded gills, and a mealy smell. T. sulphureum has yellow flesh, thick sinuate gills, and a smell of coal gas: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tricholoma_... because of the thick looking gills on pic 2 I'm guessing T. sulphureum for now
