When: 2015-05-29

Notes: Fruiting next to Bolbitius titubans in bark mulch(beneath Eastern white pine).

Looked macroscopically similar to a Gymnopilus luetofolius when we came up on them… Very warm temps as of late.

Silver, shiny, striate stems(like a panaeolus subbalteatus, but shiny).

Caps: purple, slightly wrinkled, incurved margin, slightly conical when young, tapering but not plane with age. Small, white flocking on margins of mature specimens.

Gills: purple brown/black.

Spore print: purple brown.

Odor: pleasant, Alpha pinene hints, farinaceus.

Well, Psathyrella-

Well Psathyrella it is for now. It’s crazy to find so many widespread species from time to time here at the arboretum from all the wacky trees they import and introduce from around the globe. I will look into more keys and P. bipellis(if I dare tread the cautiously forewarned trail).

Thanks again for your help and guidance Byrain!

Hope your neck of the woods is plentiful this season brother ;-)

Might be safe for P. bipellis, but I’m erring on the side of caution personally. :)
