Comments
Tricholoma flavovirens is recognized by its yellow to yellowish-brown, viscid cap, robust stature, yellow notched gills, and pale yellow stipe. Tricholoma sulphureum, rare in our area, is similar in color but has the odor of sewer gas and lacks a viscid cap. Tricholoma sejunctum also has a yellowish cap but is streaked with dark fibrils, is less viscid, and has white gills.
