Observation 26554: Entoloma abortivum (Berk. and M.A. Curtis) Donk
When: 2009-07-10
No herbarium specimen

Notes: This is a visid brain like fungi growing in dense undergrowth on and about the ground of a decaying tree. There were numerous other mushrooms growing within the same space as this fungi. I returned to the same area several weeks later to find the fungi still present, however in diminished numbers with changes to its color which is more of a tallow hue.

These have been reported to be a parasite of Armillaria’s otherwise known as the honey mushrooms. I have found them in WV always in the presents of Honey mushrooms.
