  1. I live in Humboldt County California and I have been mushroom hunting in the forest behind me house for years but have never seen anything like this. At first glance I thought it was some kind of puffball but after breaking part of the cap I saw gills. I knew it couldn’t be a puffball. I’ve think I narrowed it down to either Matsutake or Amanita Smithiana. Supposedly Matsutake smells like cinnamon but the smell doesn’t stand out to me. It smells earthy. The outer layer of flesh is cotton like which supposedly is a characteristic of the Matsutake. If anyone could help me identify this mushroom from the pictures that would be great.
  2. Technically, the matsutake mushrooms can grow in PA. I have searched many places around my area, but found no matsutake mushrooms at all. I'm wondering at where, what time these mushrooms appear? It is said that the matsutake mushrooms were the only survivors of all organisms after WWII Atomic Bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. I know the State of Maine has matsutake mushrooms. I'm hoping we have matsutakes in PA too. Picture from internet ↓
  3. I found this yesterday in a conifer forest in the Pacific Northwest. It was mostly buried and has a very strong smell like cinnamon and feet. Its gills are not attached to the stem. Is this a matsutake? Thanks for any help.
