Observation 48852: Gymnopus (Pers.) Roussel
When: 2010-07-19
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: Found and not id’ed by others at the SMG meeting.

There was some argument over this one. The are small, brown, non-viscid, and had a strong odor of rotten cabbage. We went at it as a Marasmius at first, but the deep brown gills don’t seem to match anything there. I thought it was Gymnopus at first, but people didn’t seem to jump on that. Some thought these might have brown spores, although most were in the white spore camp.

I saved a few here, and plan on getting them under the scope to get more info. But I thought I would toss them up here to see what people thought.

these appear to be brown spored.
also, the twisted stipe, bulbous base and general gestalt match Inocybe quite well.
