Observation 14257: Psathyrella (Fr.) Quél.
When: 2008-11-15
No herbarium specimen

Notes: In Aurora, keys out to Clitocybe gigantea, which doesn’t look at all like this. At first thought it was a Tricholooma, and indeed in Aurora it keys at first to that genus. Cap composed of multitudinous white fibrils, often in layers. Fibrils at top of cap yellow-tinted, at middle white-tinted, and becoming somewhat graying toward the base. What may be remnants of a veil adher to the edge of the cap. Stipe is white, long (6-8 inches), somewhat brittle, and with large scales or patches. Peals upwards, not downwards. Thought about Stropharia, but gills not the smoky-gray color I associate with that genus.
