No specimen available

On ground under pine and mixed hardwoods. Slimy yellow orange cap with darker fibrils. White adnexed gills. Orange stem with red brown fibers—paler at apex (above apparent ring zone), whitish base. White context, brown where eaten by bugs. Unpleasant odor. Heavy rains of last few days may have washed out cap color.

I was told it arrived. I haven’t been to the herbarium in quite a while. I’ll post the micrographs in that obs whenever I make it to that collection.

Thanks, Rocky

Did you get the sample I sent you?


Any ideas on this would be appreciated

It is kind of reminiscent of Pholiota with the slimy cap and somewhat scaly cap and stem but the gills are white and it is apparently terrestrial. Heavy rains the last few days have degraded the specimens.
