Observation 116446: Phaeocollybia olivacea A.H. Sm.
When: 2012-11-05

Notes: These were growing in clusters and a semi-circle near a Spruce habitat.
Caps were up to 6.9 cm across.
Did not get a spore print but spores were ~ 9.0-11.0 X 6.0-6.9 microns, rough with a prominent apical beak.
If I use the USDA reference, Phaeocollybia scatesiae seems possible but the PNW Keys and photos by Norvell and Exeter don’t reinforce that ID.

in that case… These look pretty good for P. olivacea. One that I myself was guilty of picking in RNP today…

Noah, I’m looking for constructive ID help,

not tongue-in-cheek recriminations, seasoned with hypocrisy.

These looked picked… Don’t you know, you are not allowed to pick mushrooms in Jed Smith…
