Observation 13152: Xeromphalina campanella (Batsch) Kühner & Maire
When: 2008-10-26
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Wiry-tough dark brown/smokey gray/nearly black stipes are nearly 2 inches tall; cap yellow with brown tints; base of stalk with brown mycelium. Clustered on well-rotted wood, possibly vine maple. I suspect the caps would be much more brightly colored if rehydrated or fresh. They look like they dehydrate quickly, with almost no cap flesh, slightly decurrent brownish-orange gills to dark brown; stipe thin but very tough. I’ll let the photos do the rest of the telling.

Used references: Aurora’s Mushrooms Demystified. BTW, my specimens look nothing like the color photo in Mushrooms Demystified, but most of the mushrooms are rather dehydrated now.
