Observation 110750: Hebeloma (Fr.) P. Kumm.

When: 2012-09-21

Collection location: Southeast Portland, Multnomah Co., Oregon, USA [Click for map]

Who: Daniel B. Wheeler (Tuberale)

No specimen available

Found in grassy area underneath larger Quercus palustris in a local business area.

Pileus has many soft fibrils, nearly hair-like on the top, just slightly darker than the bread-crust brown cap which is 2.5 × 2 inches, semi-ovate. The stipe is hollow, slightly twisted, with reddish fibrils extending nearly the entire length, but becoming creamy to off-white near the cap. Gills are a soft buff-brown with white edges, alternating long, medium, long, short, medium, short, long, etc. No noticeable odor except a faint fungal odor; gill edges bruise reddish where handled. Sporocarps nearly covered in grassy manicured lawn.

I’d guess Collybia, but that’s just a guess.
