Observation 33210: Melanoleuca Pat.
When: 2007-08-18
No herbarium specimen

Notes: These medium-sized fungi grew in a small group on needle-covered soil under planted Siberian pines, Pinus sibirica. These pines are an introduced species in our area (they occur naturally in neighboring regions) and probably so is the mushroom – I’ve only seen it once, and it’s very eyecatching. It has a strong mealy smell, like Calocybe gambosa, which, together with the mushroom’s visible macroscopic features, led the community of mycoweb.borda.ru to a version that this is a species of Calocybe, possibly related to Calocybe ionides.

no specimen, but Melanoleuca fits

Thank you, Alan!
Unfortunately I don’t have a dried specimen, but now that you’ve proposed Melanoleuca, the stem texture, cap color + white gills, gill attachment, proportions – everything seems to fit nicely. No definitive ideas about the exact species, though.

smooth spores?

Do these have smooth spores?
