Observation 29598: Galerina Earle
When: 2009-12-06
No herbarium specimen

Notes: I found this in a snow storm, Growing on a downed log of Beech. At first looks like a Galerina BUT the underside of the gills are RED like a Cortinarius in the Dermocybe group, and there is no noticeable annulus on the stem. I have never herd of a Cort growing on wood before. Spore print orange rusty brown. the cap is a bit viscid with rubbery texture It is snowing out here at the moment. Temp 23 degrees Fahrenheit the wind is blowing like crazy so i got he best shot under those conditions.
