Observation 11219: Hygrophorus pudorinus (Fr.) Fr.
When: 2008-09-15
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Viscid little mushroom growing from a chunk of wood. This wood also had a cup fungus on it (obs. 11220) and there were no fewer than five other mushroom species nearby (obs. 11221, 11222, 11226, 11227, and 11228) in a fairly small area.

Third photo shows the same mushroom three days later. Viscidity is gone and the cap has enlarged somewhat.

Fourth and fifth show it after a further three days. It had gotten knocked off the substrate at some point during the preceding 72 hours, so I moved it and photographed the gills. Something about them says “Hygrophorus” to me.
