Observation 26090: Hebeloma (Fr.) P. Kumm.
When: 2009-10-01
No herbarium specimen

Notes: CAP: 3-5.5cm wide, convex to umbilicate (rarely planed in extreme old-age), yellow to cream-colored, with reddish-brown areas where compressed, bruised or damaged, especially in the center, sometimes with a light buff ring near the edge, may have minute scales/hairs. GILLS: well-formed, blade-like, alternating, often edged in white, dull buff to light brown or tannish. STIPE: swolen at base, striate/fibrous, to 10cm in length, snapping near cap, but leaving a central core, sometimes with white core throughout, silky appearance, like corn-silk, may bruise or stain dark reddish-brown over 48 hours if pinched, somewhat minutely scaley, no annulus that I can see with hand lens. ODOR: sweet, floral, like lilacs (or, perhaps, sweet peas). Spore-print: light- to dark-brown.
