looks good, intriguing mushrooms.

Although I haven’t found much info…

on particular species of Clitopilus, my understanding is that the genus is placed in the Entolomataceae. so I’m supposing the spores should be pink, pinkish, or at least not white. Are there any white-spored Clitopilus?

I’m leaning toward Clitocybe. But I’d like to find a few more of these for further examination.

However, that doesn’t mean this is one! Seemed a fair proposal to me :)

The only Clitopilus species I know is C. prunulus. These are not C. prunulus. I’ll do a little checking on this genus. Also, the only Ampulloclitocybe species I know is A. clavipes. There was plenty of this type growing near this obs. I don’t think this obs (114099) is A. clavipes. The stipe does not match with my concept of this type.

Thanks Britney and Richard for the suggestions. The material rotted, but if I manage to collect more of this, I’ll look at a piece of gill under the scope.

I had forgotten to examine the context to see if the gelatinous layer was present. Maybe some sort of Clitocybe? “Hohenbuehelia” was basically a guesstalt.

not sure what it is

the gills aren’t even enough to be petaloides and the cap that has damage in the upper right would have exposed that almost clear tissue below the pellicle in petaloides.
