When: 2008-09-15

Collection location: Forest near Elgin St., Pembroke, Ontario, Canada [Click for map]

Who: Paul Derbyshire (Twizzler)

No specimen available

These superficially resemble Naematoloma fasciculare, but the gills are not crowded and narrow. There are signs of a partial veil on some, though no clear rings. Some sort of Stropharia or close relative?

Regardless, they were growing in tufts near the base of a tree. Hardwood, I think.
