Observation 191499: Pholiota velaglutinosa A.H. Sm. & Hesler

When: 2014-11-28

Collection location: Magalia, California, USA [Click for map]

Who: DrMurky

No specimen available

This mushroom is the slimiest mushroom I have ever seen. The slime hung down around the edge of the cap, but it was not sticky. It was slimy to the touch, but did not cling to my finger, so it was pretty stable in the mushroom. The picture of the mushroom in the tree was just my attempt to get a better quality picture, but it does the saprobic nature of the mushroom. I was not in true identification mode, so I did not gather any details abotu odor, staining, stem characters, etc.
