Comments: Growing in a group of five pilei; pilei small or still young; pilei across 0.9 – 2 cm, maximally 7 mm thick; pilei with gelatinous cutis easily peeling off, very sticky; stipe absent, some white mycelium present at the point of attachment; taste mild, indistinctive, smell none; flesh soft, pliant, watery; SP abundant, neutral brown, oac783. I follow taxonomy given in Krieglsteiner (2001) who distinguishes two varieties of Crepidotus mollis, var. mollis and var. calolepsis. The latter on has scales on its pileus (which was not the case in my find) and is considered by some authors as a separate species.
