Observation 25867: Gymnopus peronatus (Bolton) Gray
When: 2009-09-27
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Found in great numbers and ages on forest duff in mixed coniferous and red alder forest. Caps are creamy and slightly downy, inrolled margins when young. Gills are free and pretty far apart. The spores may be white, as I notice the area underneath older ones is often dusted white.
The interesting feature is the stipe, which is very slightly yellow, but covered in cottony layers of varying thickness. The whole mushroom is pretty tough and lasts a long time. I’ve noted them now for almost a month and they are not done yet.

Why does this one always confound me? I know I’ve seen it before but never put it all together until I do the research all over again…
