When: 2010-08-22

Collection location: Thoiry, France [Click for map]

Who: Douglas Smith (douglas)

No specimen available

Found under spruce and fir.

Very small, only 4-6 mm in diameter, in among the needle duff. They had no discernible odor, but with the colors, and hygrophanous cap, I’m not sure what else they could be.

I don’t think I saved these, and they were perhaps too young to even have spores. But just last week I found more of these from the same place. I’ve saved these, and at some point maybe I’ll take a look at the spores.

Could this be a Callistosporium or a different Rhodocybe?
