Observation 14221: Xeromphalina campanella (Batsch) Kühner & Maire
When: 2008-11-14
No herbarium specimen
0 Sequences

Found on a large 5-foot diameter rotting log which had been cut, fungi growing from cut surface. Log was covered with lichens, mushrooms, mosses; yet butt-end was just starting to decay, which suggests the log may be Western Red cedar.

Fungus is dark reddish-brown, with a curious depression in the center of the cap, which flares outward and downward; gills golden to buff-tan, somewhat cantherellus-like; stipe dark brown to nearly black, tough, wirely, about 2mm at substrate attachment, flaring to perhaps 4mm where descendant gills being appearing, and perhaps 6mm at widest point which would include a portion of the hollow top of the cap (see photos).
