Observation 200168: Inocybe (Fr.) Fr.
When: 2015-03-05

Notes: Really strikingly large Inocybe – the biggest fruitbodies (dimensions but especially overall mass) of this genus that I’ve seen.

Cap up to 6 cm across
Largest stipe dimensions were 12 × 2 cm

Stipe with beautiful shiny vertical striations.
Distinct but weak rimmed basal bulb.
Odor not strong, slightly green-corn like (not sweet or cinnamony).

I expected a sweeter odor because of the greenish-blue-gray staining on the cap and stipe, but overall the colors and texture didn’t look right for I. corydalina either.

With Coast Live Oak.

but see comments – the really shocking bit was how much they weighed.
But yeah sororia gets real tall (taller than these)

Surely you’ve seen I. sororia taller than 12cm? G:
