When: 2014-10-10
No herbarium specimen

Notes: -This specimen was associated with wood. It was found on its own on a decaying deadwood log.
-No distinctive smell besides wet dirt.
-The cap was measured to be around 4.8 cm.
-The surface of the dark brown cap felt dry and smooth. It appeared shiny.
-The pileal shape was broadly convex, and the margins were not striate.
-When the specimen was cut in half, the flesh was observed to be white. No noticeable changes in the cap, but the flesh did have somewhat of a moist center. [Possibly excess water in the tissues?]
-The white stipe was centrally located. It measured to be about 5.5 cm in length and 0.5 cm in width.
-When the stipe was halved, it was observed to be solid and equal shaped.
-The base appeared to be inserted.
-The surface of the stipe felt dry and smooth. It looked fibrillose.
-The very faint/pale peach colored gills were free from the stipe, and they appeared to be erroded.
-The lamallae was arranged in a regular pattern.
-The spore print was medium brown. Under 40x magnification, the spores were somewhat oval shaped and brown. Many cystidium present.
