Record Summary in grass
Identification Notes: Growing a meter or so from 24 Sep 06 [K] from which it mainly differed in taste.
Cap: greasy.
Stipe: greasy.
Taste: numbs the tongue! (Camilla Lovatt was convinced about this and could still feel it several minutes later. Malcolm Storey was just aware of a slight tingling but that may have been imagination)
