Observation 14746: Hygrocybe conica (Schaeff.) P. Kumm.
When: 2008-11-29
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Cap with ruby highlights especially at top of conical cap, orange toward the rim, with black fibrils some some striation, deeply lobed but not cracked, slippery; GILLS: white, waxy, I think free, but could be notched, my photo did not turn out well because of the stipe; STIPE: at least 5 inches (13cm), yellow with red striations, twisted, slimy and hard to hold, which accounts for the gill photo being out of focus, rather tough; a very strikingly beautiful mushroom growing in a slash area from a clear-cut done 2-3 years before, but with a few scattered Douglas fir still living, growing in thick grass and limb debris.

[admin – Sat Aug 14 02:04:29 +0000 2010]: Changed location name from ‘Paul Bishop’s Jones Creek Tree Farm, Clackamas Co., OR’ to ‘Paul Bishop’s Jones Creek Tree Farm, Beavercreek, Oregon, USA’
