i concede. it is possible. it was July, maybe it rained a ton prior. what do I know about east coast fungi anyway? vote changed :)

edit: east coast humidity on the other hand, I do know a thing or two about. born and raised til age seven in Philadelphia. the second stickiest summers ever (next to the Amazon).

Its our here in northern east coast all the time.(hardly tropical, though i know you’ve been to NYC in the humidity!) AND being a lignicolous fungi, at least it could have had a source of moisture.

how so?

IG says it was bone dry. The only Gerronema that pops up in the states does so where it’s super warm and wet, like any good primarily tropical agaric. I guess it’s possible, I just find it ‘Doubtful’.
