Observation 22062: Mycena (Pers.) Roussel
When: 2009-06-11
No herbarium specimen

Notes: This might be T.rancida but looking at photos of it in other places rancida looks differnet. I did further study just goggling the name several species of Tephrocybe showed up. T. palustris seems to be the closes in resemblance. Found growing under White Oak but next to a fallen tree spore print is white.

no Laccaria!

o.k. for the Laccaria, I cancelled it.
I’m not too happy with T. rancida, because I see violett colours in this fungus on the picture. T. rancida is grey-blackish with a metal shine. But I have no better idea though ….

Its defiantly not a laccaria The spores on a Laccaria are round these are elliptical and not ornamented the stem is only about as round as a 20 g needle soft and brittle the cap is very fragile if you look If you look at Laccaria caps there some what tough. The color of this a dark brown almost black

does not look like what I’d typically expect for a Laccaria. How about Collybia alkalivirens? I just ran across it in Phillips’ book. Except for the gills being lighter colored than the cap, the rest of the macro features seem to match pretty well.

May be Laccaria?

Lyophyllum palustris is impossible, as this species is confinded to Sphagnum mosses. Judging from the colour of the gils and cap, this might by just Laccaria amethystea, although the stipe is not very typical.
