Observation 27608: Agaricales sensu lato
When: 2009-10-31
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Found in my next-door neighbor’s front lawn, probably damaged from lawn aerating done yesterday during rainstorm. Cap was found on sidewalk, thick stipe base still in lawn about a foot away. This appears to be one of those secotoid fungi trying to decide whether to stay above ground or go gopher.

why the bombing of the Agaricales sensu lato suggestion? The taxonomic equivalent of “gilled mushroom” is about as far as the info in this observation will allow us to get. No trace of rusty brown spores or cortina for Cortinarius, uncharacteristically dark gills for Russula or Lactarius.

It’s been nearly 3 years since I found this single sporocarp.

I think this fungus fruits rarely, if at all. What makes it doubly unlikely is that I can see the fruiting area easily every time I get in my car.

Only one other oddity in the fruiting: the same year this was seen, my neighbor removed a large Acer macrophyllum (Bigleaf maple) from her front yard, about 120 linear feet away from where this was fruiting at. Tree was overgrowing her roof, had rot in several trunks, and was becoming a problem. All other nearby trees (within 200 feet) are still there, but no additional fruitings.

Yes, all species of Cortinarius are mychrrhizal

It doesn’t look much like Cortinarius anyway. Watch for better fruit bodies in the future.

Wish I could agree, Alan.

Certainly has features that resemble Cortinarius, doesn’t it?

One problem. My next-door neighbor’s front yard is devoid of any trees or nearby shrubs this might be mycorrhizal with. I believe more Cortinarius are mycorrhizal, aren’t they?
