I do not think that this mushroom lives in Ohio. I might be moving north soon. This is a species that I really want to find some day. Still waiting to see the microscopy photos ;-)

I would be great to see some microscopy photos of this elusive little guy.

found on a fairly steep bank that goes down to a lake. The bank has a bunch of displaced leaves and wood from flooding and water flow. Mostly hardwood trees around with a couple pines here and there.

Nice Find!

This mushroom still eludes me, despite many years of searching.
