Observation 196659: Phaeomarasmius Scherff.

growing on “mother log” of unknown wood (probably oak, though), with at least five other different species fruiting! Observed during my mushroom class at the garden on Saturday; spotted by a keen-eyed ten year old budding mycologist! You go, guy!

so not my thing! but this one was lovely and distinctive. If ALL Flammulasters, and there are lots, have powdery, easily removed veils, then this ain’t it.

I couldn’t find a key to Phaeomarasmius, either, but this one seems possible. No idea how close other species might be, how they differ, etc. Yeah, it’s not in the Known Range, but isn’t that what we do here? Extend ranges (once proven to species)?

Amusingly in retrospect, we tossed another small brown capped mushroom collected at the Garden on Sat. that did appear to have a rather powdery cap. That one probably was a Flammulaster, but I figured that I would never get a name to it.

Live and learn.
