Observation 110752: Laccaria Berk. & Broome
When: 2012-09-21
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Obs. found near Quercus palustris, which may also be the mycorrhizal host. Also found nearly hidden in well-manicured lawn. Cap is more yellow than other Laccaria laccata I’ve collected; about 1 inch across. Edges of pileus has a pleated appearance, like ruffles on a skirt. Gills are rather blunt, not knife-edged. Stipe is slightly twisted, 7-9cm long, with fibrils especially near the cap; less obvious near the base. There is a dusting of whitish or white-buff-granules on the cap, which can look a little like orange sherbert in subdued lighting. Fungal aroma.
