Observation 147989: Trichoderma Pers.
When: 2013-09-28

Notes: The intent of this observation is to identify the dark green stuff – hypomyces or Trichoderma growing on the mushroom. But since I have never seen a mushroom like this, I am willing to take it as a mixed collection. It is not unusual in this location to find Armillaria growing in the mowed grass, so perhaps the secondary fungus deformed – and separated – the gills. The stalk has white fibrils similar to Armillaria, the bulb at the base of the stalk may not match.

I don’t know how you got that one! …or how either one of you can see a Laccaria under that mossy veil! Thanks again.
