Observation 26180: Cystoderma amianthinum (Scop.) Fayod

When: 2009-10-02

Collection location: Forest near Elgin St., Pembroke, Ontario, Canada [Click for map]

Who: Paul Derbyshire (Twizzler)

No specimen available

C. amianthinum was found in similar environments last year. Neither photo clearly shows the stipe’s darker and scalier lower part, but that feature was there. Note also the finely scaly cap with appendiculate margin, and white gills.

So, I think this may be C. amianthinum. A small group was growing in Zone 24.
