Notes: Habitat – Growing among mosses over sandy clay soil, in hardwood and pine understory.

Smell – not quite mushroom, not bad, but I can’t describe.
Taste – did not

SPORE PRINT- dark brown, NO reddish or yellow tint.

SPORE SIZES – see photos, calculations TBD

MICROSCOPY – see photos. GILLS: gill edges were dense with 2-4 pronged basidia. I saw no cysts and only a few basidioles among the basidia. CAP: Fibrous cap material observed, mixocutis, saw no cysts on surface of cap but might be hidden by fibrous material. Hyphae, not sure how to describe – I looked for clamped connections and saw none.

CAP – very fibrous over entire cap. Most were 1-1.5 inches across, a few of the largest were 2.5 inches across. Cap brown, orange-yellow tinted. see photos. a few younger specimens showed an umbral shape ( not in photos )

GILLS – mature gills took on same color as cap, browned by spore. Attached. Attached gills separated by free gills. Intermediate gills. Braching gills, short gills. Young specimen, gills ivory-tan. see photos.

Stipe – very fibrous, threads of cortina can be seen in young specimen. see photos.
