Observation 20957: Galerina marginata (Batsch) Kühner
When: 2009-05-11
No herbarium specimen

Notes: And now I’m pleased to present: the first gilled mushroom observation of the year from my area!

These were growing on a log in a low, damp area well away from any trail. They were orangish, small, with closely-spaced gills; the biggest was maybe half an inch across.

The first three photos are of a large cluster, one of two clusters on the log. The next two are of a smaller cluster a couple of feet away along its length. The final photo is of the largest mushroom in that smaller cluster, upended.
