Observation 262498: Pseudoomphalina cokeri (Hesler) Vizzini, Contu & Z.W. Ge
When: 2016-11-25
(40.5686° -79.9092° 392m)
No herbarium specimen

Notes: In the field I though it might be a cort as the gills showed a hit of orange. Later decided I was being deceived and it might be a Laccaria. Spore print was white, but the spores did not have spines. Then I thought about Hygrocybe and that is where I am stuck. Mushroom was fairly abundant across the forest floor growing on the ground under mixed oaks and tulip popular.

Neohygrophorus cokeri seems to still be a synonymy of Clitocybe cokeri according to Index/Species Fungorum. So I don’t know exactly which one I should be using.

This morning I noted a cucumber/farinaceous odor and that also fits with the description.

For the record caps 30mm to 50mm wide. Stem averaging about 60mm. Spores did not react to Melzer’s so not amyloid. Has been sampled for DNA.

jimmiev – thanks for the ID.
