Observation 191262: Cortinarius subgenus Sericeocybe P.D. Orton
When: 2013-11-22
No herbarium specimen

Notes: You can see the reddish brown spore on the stem. The smell was odd, not strong, not bad, but I could not describe it.

No liquid running out when broken. In the first photo the mushroom to the right has the cap broken off at the stem so that you see a cross section. It broke easily but not brittlely. The stem was more fibrous than fleshy. It was rooted and growing in soil in a hardwood grove. The closest trees were Sweet Gum.

NOT Collybia iocephala due to free gill attachment.

Possibly Phaeocollybia genus from Gilled Mushroom Keys – MushroomExpert.com

From memory, I think the cap was about 2.75 inch to 3.00 inch across.
