Observation 49740: Marasmius pallidocephalus Gilliam

When: 2010-08-03

Collection location: Point Reyes National Seashore, Marin Co., California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Ron Pastorino (Ronpast)

No specimen available

I’m leaning toward M. pallidocephalus over M. androsaceus for several reasons:
The cap color is lighter.
The stem is lighter in color.
The gills are more subdistant.
The spores are more lacrymoid
The maybe most importantly, these were growing on Douglas fir (Pseudotsuga) debris, which is a primary differentiating characteristic in the Desjardin description.
