Observation 23294: Pholiota (Fr.) P. Kumm.
When: 2009-07-09
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: Found several scattered on rotting log. Spore print medium brown.

Update: pileipellis a cutis; cap K+ v dark brown (distinctly reddish brown under L. M.); taste mild (definitely not “distinctly bitter”); no cystidia found on edge or face of gills; spores look smooth to me, but not sure about presence of germ pore, 6.5-7.5 × 4.5-5.0 µm.

Looks like Gymnopilus

Those look like Gymnopilus. Check if they are bitter, or if KOH turns the cap dark brick-red-brown, or if the spores are warted.
