Tricoloma populinum
(The Sand Mushroom)


Grows under Cottonwood trees around October.


This is one of the last mushrooms of the season. They always fruit under cottonwoods and can be buried in the leaves and / or sand. They are one of the only fall mushrooms that can be found after all the others are killed off by frosts. They stain reddish brown quickly when nicked or cut. They are often very abundant growing in large groups. Look along creek beds and flood plains.
