Observation 179501: Rhodocollybia Singer
When: 2014-09-18

Notes: Two small colonies of fungi in close proximity but at slightly different stages of maturity and with one group in more shade than the other. Both groups of fungi were loosely existing in forest decayed soil and in partial shade.
Caps plain, gills white and crowded. Spore print (on white paper) appears to be cream or tending towards light yellow. Also, both groups of fungi were found to be growing with and attached to at the stipe base to a mass of fine hair roots in a ball shape, when fungi removed from its habitat.
Stipes were long and firm as was the whole fungi. No distinctive aroma was detected or bruising when handled.
Micrographs are of Gill & Cap section.
