When: 2015-08-07

Notes: Found just north of the Ward Park section of the trail in a back area.

On a large rotted log, appeared to be birch but not certain – was hardwood.

Smell: distinct spicey smell. Species is supposed to have an Anise smell but I probably would not be able to tell.

Largest cap – 10 cm. Shape conical with broad umbro at maturity. Small umbo seen on buttons. Cap surface on mature cap is satiny smooth with flat darker fiber at the edges and darker fibrels over the umbo.

Stalk: growing directly out of wood, central, base about twice the thickness at the cap. see photo.

Gills: crowded, white on fresh mature specimen, salmon pink stained by spore on past maturity cap. Short gills of varying length.

Spore Print – salmon pink
