Observation 22745: Gerronema strombodes (Berk. & Mont.) Singer

I found these guys in several locations through out WV. At first i thought is to be a chantralle of some sort. The spore print is yellow on these specimens but others i have collected from Plum Orchard lake have a white spore print. The seem to prefer hard wood logs The younger caps are a gray green but soon turn to yellow as they mature. They have a mild taste and a sweet odor about them. I have collected in the same area and this isthe first year i have sen this. Apparently it is rare according to literature i have been able to find for this
