When: 2012-07-18

Collection location: New London Co., Connecticut, USA [Click for map]

Who: Sam.Schaperow (SamSchaperow)

No specimen available

Found in mixed woods by itself. Tiny jumping bugs, plus fly larvae enjoy this mushroom. Cap a bit sticky. Didn’t find a cup, either. My error or was it not there for whatever reason; I don’t know. Odor & taste mild to lacking.


Should the annulus be so white on a ceasar?
Look @ annulus at full-size photo. Anyone know what that little brown-gray bug is on it? They can jump.
The dirt on the base, does that indicate a volval cup was lacking or

My guess for the tiny insect-like creature on the annulus (also in the lamelae, but not as in focus as the annulus one) is some sort of Collembola, but if anyone knows better, please let us know.
