Observation 11336: Cantharellula umbonata (J.F. Gmel.) Singer
When: 2008-09-18
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Definitely the same species as in obs. 11026. Accompanying them in these moss patches were, again, other mushroom species (obs. 11333 and 11337 — looks like the same species as obs. 11028 and 11027, respectively, which occurred along with obs. 11026 — and obs. 11334).

This time I have much better photos due to improved camera technique and other factors.

As occurred the first time, I found younger specimens with conical caps on tall stems and older specimens mostly decapitated for some reason. From one of the latter I got an especially good shot of the gills this time (seventh photo); they are quite clearly forked.

The younger ones are maybe half a centimeter wide, the cap equally tall, and the stem half that wide and several cm long with most of that length hidden in the mossy substrate. The older ones are maybe 1cm wide.

Second and sixth images are of the same pair, from slightly different angles and distances.
