Observation 191145: Hypholoma fasciculare (Huds.) P. Kumm.

When: 2014-12-01

Collection location: Cedar Springs Boat Ramp and Park area, Upshur Co., Texas, USA [Click for map]

Who: L G Price (LG_Price)

No specimen available

Growing around large old hardwood stump. Appeared to be growing from the ground but the ground was probably composed of a lot of rotting wood from the stump.

Odor – moderate – “clean” mushroom smell

cobweb like partial veil covered the gills of the smaller mushrooms and clung to the gills in tatters in the larger caps. You could see the grey-purple spore on the PV where it had peeled away in the larger caps.

The largest caps were a little over 2 inches across. The cap top is dry with a golden orange center and yellow edges. The stipe is colored like the edge of the cap and in both there was a slight greenish cast to the yellow.

There was no milk when I broke the caps and just a moderate odor described above. The mycelium was white.

Gills were yellow in the younger mushrooms and stained grey over yellow in the older caps. The gills were “close”.

The stipes were longer than the caps are wide. see photos. Growing in groups as shown in the photos.

Staining brown where cut, broken, handled.
