Observation 54553: Entoloma abortivum (Berk. and M.A. Curtis) Donk
When: 2010-09-21
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Initially I was going to call these Clitopilus prunulus because of their appearance and strong odor. And the spore print was a deep salmon color. However the distinctly angular shape ruled that out.
What I’m left with is apparently Entoloma abortivum in a very early stage. The spores were in the range of 8.8-10.5 X 6.0-7.0 microns.
In the general area we were finding lots of Armillaria mellea and fully aborted Entolomas but never growing next to each other.
