Clitocybe squamulosa Tricholomatace Agaricales
Small funnel-shaped reddish-brown mushroom
Cap: 1-4 cm funnel-shaped or slightly convex with depressed center, smooth with thin margin, color light orange-brown or brownish-orange up to dull reddish-brown, sometimes with weak concentric coloring; margins are lighter and curved down with aging, especially when dried. Flesh is thin and whitish, odor is pleasant.
Gills: descending stalk, narrow, rather close and almost distant, with short and very short additional gills, whitish, somewhat light cream or yellowish-white.
Stalk: 2-4 cm long, 0.3-0.8cm thick, fibrous and some elastic, sometimes slightly enlarged down; reddish-brown, sometimes lighter than a cap.
Edibility: no accurate data for this location.
Habitat: very common and the first kind after rain; scattered rather densely in pine-tree forest before some boletus appeared, when mushrooming is absent.
Comments: this kind looks as reddish variety of Clitocybe gibba, but several times smaller; it is smaller, darker and more reddish than Clitocybe inversa.
June – September.
