brown spore?

Hi Douglas,

I did not get a spore print on these. I’m glad you pointed out the serrated gills. I had not noticed them. Little orange mushrooms like these are pretty common on hardwoods logs in Ohio in the fall. I used to think they were all “little gyms” Gymnopilus sapineus, but I have since noticed many subtle differences from collection to collection. Pholiota granulosa is another name I have thrown at little orange jobs like these, but I suspect there might be quite a few species hideing under those two names.

Are you sure these are brown spored? The gills are rather light. The gill edges are rather serrate, kinda interesting, not sure where that gets you though…
