Observation 27860: Inocybe (Fr.) Fr.

When: 2009-10-30

Collection location: Samuel H. Boardman State Scenic Corridor, Curry Co., Oregon, USA [Click for map]

Who: Ron Pastorino (Ronpast)

No specimen available

These looked like Inocybe calamistrata. The spore size was closer to Inocybe hirsuta var. maxima but there was no reddening that I could see. Also, I didn’t get any strong odor from these but odor detection is definitely not my forte.
There was a greenish tint on the stipe base and even on the cap of the yougest one. However, it was not strong and barely shows up in the photos.
They were growing in a predominantly spruce area.

for the comments. I was pretty shaky on that id and was looking for other possibilities. Unfortunately I didn’t save these…no voucher-no glory.
I agree with Irene. You should keep it, describe its features and deposit it in a public

herbarium for studying … maybe some day it will get your name if it’s really a new one :)

In my mind

this is not calamistrata. Another that can have greenish hues, which it also reminds of, is Inocybe heimii (growing in coastal dunes near Pinus).
But don’t be surprised if you find an undescribed species, impossible to ID. It’s a lot of them out there.
