No specimen available

Photographed by my son with his phone while on assignment in Oregon with Americorps – slimy hygrophanous tan cap, campanulate, slight umbo, ridged, Margin lighter than cap, turned under, uneven or ragged. Gills white with short lamellae at periphery that make the gills look forked (but probably are not); adnexed to sinuate attachement to stipe. Stipe dark brown, translucent at top with purplish tint; may have scattered squamules and a ring zone. Growing in grass and moss near Thelephorus under Oregon pine – Douglas fir. Hygrophorus? Gliophorus? Marasmius?

You were way off, but so was I with my suggestions. The cap texture and surface definitely sent us down the wrong path, but I agree with Noah’s suggestion, and I see you came around to the same conclusion. …I admit, you definitely had me worried with the suggestion of Galerina. Sometimes it is not that you win the race, but that you are in the game!

dont thank me…
