Observation 54749: Hebeloma crustuliniforme (Bull.) Quél.
When: 2010-10-02
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Growing in grass/dirt but near/under a baby madrone. Cap white/beige (tawny?), wavy with “scalloped edges”, viscid. 7cm diameter. Gills light brown, close and wavy, notched/sinuate. Breaking the cap, the flesh has a very distinct odour of radish. Stalk 12cm x 2cm, white, with a silky sheen – looks like a bundle of fibers (rough/sinuate), clean/white – no trace of a veil nor any flakes or powder at the apex and stalk base was not enlarged. Spore print brown, spores almond-shaped/elliptical and smooth.

MD p. 398 18 → 19 → 20 → 21 → Hebeloma p. 463
MD p. 463 1 → 3 → 4 → 6 → 8 → 10 H. crustuliniforme matches most of the description except for the stalk. However keying the alternatives lead me to Agrocybe which has cellular pileus cells and these definitely looked filamentous.
