This was interesting, a Peck-species from 1888, and a new species described exactly like it from Italy 1998! It would be interesting to know how much research Consiglio did before he described aemiliae..

Peck’s original description looked like this:
“Pileus convex or nearly plane, obtuse, often irregular, dry, minutely squamose, sooty-brown, flesh grayish, odor and taste farinaceous;
lamellae subdistant, uneven on the edge, cinereous, becoming blackish in drying,
stem short, solid, equal, glabrous, cinereous;
spores oblong, elliptical, .0003 in. long, .00016 in. broad.
Pileus 1 to 2.5 in. broad; stem 1 to 1.5 in. long, 3 to 5 lines thick.
Among mosses in open places. Catscill mountains, September.”

I wonder why Peck didn’t mention the best character, the orange bruising (Kauffman did that later).

I think this is the name I meant in the first place.

And this is what I like about MO. Collections in herbariums, labeled by experts are important, but adding good photos of mushrooms that everyone has access to, is even better.

Now, suppose that a collection like this, but named Lyophyllum fumosum, had been chosen to be a part of a study, sequensed among other Lyophyllum species. What would the result be..? I suspect that things like that happen all the time.

cool Lyophyllum…

and an interesting taxonomic debate.

MO seem to be THE place to dispute these quick and dirty in hand foray IDs! And THAT is a good thing…

Lyophyllum fumosum belongs to the decastes/aggregatum group. It’s not completely investigated and there are probably lots of synonyms or merely forms of the same species.
This blackening one is interesting with the initial orange bruising – could be Lyophyllum aemiliae. I don’t know if there are any older synonyms or more than one species looking so much like it?

Orange, then black. Identification was confirmed by Renee LeBeuf at NEMF 2009.

but fumosum isn’t one of them.
