Observation 113493: Mixed collection

When: 2012-10-15

Collection location: Busse Woods North, Elk Grove Village, Illinois, USA [Click for map]

Who: Rocky Houghtby

Specimen available

This may actually be a mixed collection, But I have a feeling its not. One of the mushrooms is a paler-yellow color and clearly squamulose while the others appear glabrous. They were collected from the same 8" long spot on conifer log. Both specimens have the same gill attachment, Stipe gestalt and coloration.

Good eye. The lighter colored mushroom had a white spore print, I never did update the observation.
