Observation 27456: Agaricales sensu lato
When: 2009-10-27

Notes: This caught my eye. I thought it was just a mangled up destroyed mushroom that was partially buried, but the next day it was bigger, so I know its growing.

Recognized by sight: This has gills growing together and apart, so one of the secotoid fungi. Not enough detail to tell more. Could be a Macowanites, or other Russula relative, based solely on the visible gill structure: not a good indication for a positive identification. There are also secotoid Lactarius, Lepista, Amanita, and other mushroom families which appear to be making a transition between spore dispersal by air and spore dispersal solely by other means, principally by animal mycophagy.
