Observation 189365: Clitocybe phaeophthalma (Pers.) Kuyper
When: 2014-11-23
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Growing on ground by path through hardwoods. Mostly oak. No pine.

Soft ivory white color.

Cap – Omphalina shape. Largest cap was about 2-1/4 " across. Soft, very flexible.

Gills – same white color, Strongly decurrent to Arcuate – closest to Arcuate. I just realized I didn’t take photos of the gills, an oversight.

Button – cross section is shown in the photos, odd cross section. I was trying to check for a Partial Veil but I can’t interpret this cross section.

Stems – growing in forest floor litter with much white mycelium at the base of each. Fibrous, soft, flexible.

Moderate mushroom smell.

Spore print in progress.
