Observation 22028: Gymnopus luxurians (Peck) Murrill
When: 2009-06-10
Herbarium specimen reported
0 Sequences

These suckers really confused me when I found them. Rhodocollybia crossed my mind, however the over-mature specimens looked very unusual to me, with the cracked pileus, and especially in the cespitose clusters. There were two almost identical clusters of comparable age within a few feet of each other. I looked around the area for some fresher specimens and located 4 VERY young mushrooms within a yard from the other two clusters. At least I am pretty certain that they are a younger version of the same thing.

I’m tentatively throwing R. badiialba out there based solely on macroscopic similarity.

I have no idea. These ones have me stumped.

The large ones don’t remind me of any Leucoagaricus species that I am familiar with, but I have no better ideas, and you are certainly more familiar with the group.

I will make a separate observation for the smaller ones.

Thank you Darvin and Else for your opinions.

the four young ones look like Agrocybe putaminum.
the older clusters – could they be a Leucoagaricus?

…it would be a good idea if the site showed “Fungi sp.” for all observations with no non-negative confidences.

The edge of the gills are too smooth for R. badiialba. The small fruiting bodies seem to be the wrong color. Time for microscopy to add some info.
