Collection location: Bremerton, Washington, USA [Click for map]

Who: Brian McNett (KitsapMycologist)

No specimen available

A “concerned citizen” contacted the local mycological society regarding some mushrooms fruiting in a local park in downtown Bremerton. There is a day care next door, and children often play in the park. These were found fruiting scattered in wood chips in planter beds in the park. The “concerned citizen” knew enough to take spore prints, which are consistent with the genus Stropharia.

Was just about to update this, but you beat me to the punch. Stropharia aurantiaca, Hypholoma aurantiaca, Naematoloma aurantiaca are all synonyms.
