Observation 10588: Leptonia serrulata (Fr.) P. Kumm
When: 2008-08-03
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Scattered in a small area in pine woods after rain. Habit, habitat, and appearance are consistent with E. serrulatum as described by the Audubon Society’s field guide to North American mushrooms. Final photo shows gills are pale greyish-blue on some immature ones, also consistent. The white foot is interesting, and again consistent.

Entoloma serrulatum (Fr.) Hes. is also known as Leptonia serrulata (Pers.) Quel. according to http://www.mushroomexpert.com/entoloma_serrulatum.html and other sources. The mushroom observed here matches descriptions of this species to a T.

I think you need more info here, before you can try to put a name on them. Can’t really tell much from the photos, and need gill details and spore color to even guess the Leptonia…
