Observation 193793: Panellus serotinus (Pers.) Kühner
When: 2014-12-14
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Very amateur observations here so bare with me. Found yesterday: three days after a good 2 day soaking rain. Found on a large moist decaying hardwood laying on the ground. Mushrooms were in small clusters shelflike. Some lone specimens. Growing sporadically under along ground, up the sides and to the top. Look to be a young fruiting. I will go back tomorrow to see if there are more or more mature specimens. 3-7cm in width. Keyed out fairly easily for my first legit keying adventure to pleurotus ostreatus. But these are light tan to darker browns with some light blue/green/violet tones on the cap. Gills are tan. Flesh is pure white with texture like a very dense cottonball. Soft but firm. These were picked one day ago in the photos and at the time of keying.

Thanks for the observation. Thought it was that at first due to the color but i had also misread that the cap was velvety. When i reread the description i noticd velvety was for the stem.
