Observation 203232: Conocybe apala (Fr.) Arnolds
When: 2015-04-22
(21.4498° -158.0284° 212m)
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Creamy white mushroom, ~ 35 mm high, color darkening to pale yellow at the center of the cap. Cap bell-shaped to conical, glabrous, but slightly striated toward the cap margin, ~ 20 mm diameter, 10mm high. Cap margin narrow, ~ 2 mm, thin, light brown, sinuous. Stem creamy white, cylindrical (equal), thin, ~ 2mm diameter, possibly with some floccose material on the surface. Unfortunately, gills were not observed.

Observed growing in a neighborhood lawn. Seems visually similar to Conocybe apala, less so to Conocybe lactea. I was interrupted during the recording of this observation. When I returned a couple of hours later to finish the job by observing the gills in detail, the mushroom was gone without a trace.
