(Peck) Redhead (1984)
Tricholoma magnivelare is a gilled mushroom found in the Pacific Northwest of North America growing in coniferous woodland. These ectomycorrhizal fungi are typically edible species that exist in a symbiotic relationship with various species of pine. They belong to the genus Tricholoma, which includes the closely related East Asian songi or matsutake. T. magnivelare is also known as the ponderosa mushroom, pine mushroom.
In recent years, globalization and wider social acceptability of mushroom hunting has made collection of pine mushrooms popular among all types of people in British Columbia, where T.magnivelare is found under pine trees and often associated with deer trails.
