Observation 16364: Crepidotus (Fr.) Staude
When: 2008-12-06
No herbarium specimen

Notes: These are kinda odd, they are Crepidotus, but not on wood. These are on grass and small herbaceous stems. They have very viscid and non-hygrophanous caps, need to look at these under the scope at some point…

A Psilocybe without a stipe?

There is such a thing as a sessile Psilocybe? Really? I thought most of the Melanotus were moved into Crepidotus… oh wait was that Melanomphalia?

Anyway, cool, I should check it out. Those genera have always been a kinda dark corner of the brown-spored agarics for me… along with a few others…

Melanotus or Psilocybe phillipsii

they are a bit on the pale side, but the viscid cap and the pale lamellae, plus the distinctive habitat on grass makes this in my opinion Melanotus or Psilocybe phillipsii. Spores have a germ pore and are totally different than those of a Crepidotus.
