Distribution: Northern Hemisphere
Conservation Status: Not of concern
Hygrophorus eburneus is a medium-sized, pure white, often remarkably slimy, fungus that is common in a variety of forest types throughout the PNW and elsewhere in the Northern Hemisphere. The closest look-alike is H. piceae Kühner, which differs by having a less slimy cap, dry to slightly viscid stipe, and frequent association with spruce. It also is widely distributed, but is less common than H. eburneus in many areas.
