Observation 27464: Psathyrella piluliformis (Bull.) P.D. Orton

When: 2009-10-27

Collection location: Southern Pocono region, Pennsylvania, USA [Click for map]

Who: Dave in NE PA

No specimen available

In situ the caps were uniformely watery brown. (At first glance I thought they were Galerinas.) Once left on my spore board the color changed to a banded tan/brown with a few becoming mostly tan. I’d call the spore shape for these “bean shaped.” Pic of spore print was indoor, but colors (against white/black backgrounds) are true.
