Observation 186062: Armillaria (Fr.) Staude
When: 2014-10-25
(40.8168° 74.9018° 500m)
Who: hq3473
No herbarium specimen

Notes: These “little brown mushroom” (circled in red) were collected in the grass by a rotting old tree stump.

Need help identifying as a potential poisoning case. Originally ID’d as Kuehneromyces mutabilis, but there is a suspcion that these might be toxic Galerina autumnalis.

Any help would be appreciated.

on this table should have caused any poisoning symptoms (other than potentially minor GI irritation due to allergy-type responses).
