Observation 168513: Marasmius oreades (Bolton) Fr.

When: 2014-06-27

Collection location: Lila Ave., Yakima, Washington, USA [Click for map]

Who: Drew Henderson (Hendre17)

No specimen available

Fruiting in “fairy rings” in our backyard- mainly near the sprinklers. Found these last 2 summers at approximately the same time/location.

Guide books claim these to be edible… I’ve tried them 3 times and have hated the flavor, texture and odor. Never had any gastro upset as with some of the over 80 species I’ve tried, but superiorly unappealing in my opinion.

Temp: 72-sunny(heavy rains yesterday).

Note: fly on image 1.
