No specimen available

Clump of gilled mushrooms found on grass at the base of a Tulip tree. When first seen the caps were light gray and bell-shaped. Caps easily detached from the stalks. Stalks were gray and solid except for a narrow hollow central channel. There was an indistinct ring half way up the stalk. The light gray gills were free, very thin and tightly packed. Within a few days the caps became convex to flat, often cracked and blackish. The gills became black and “watery”.
