When: 2010-12-10
Who: Byrain
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: Found growing in large numbers under a planted tree from muddy dirt with moss and possibly wood fragments mixed in. The spore print was rusty brown and the extremely mild scent is farinaceous and I want to say its almost cucumber-like.

If anyone is interested in doing some microscopy on this observation, I have some spore prints and dried specimens available.

Will the “mesophaeum” group always have a viscid cap when wet? As these didn’t (Not even the pins), but I do see your point in difficulty identifying Hebeloma species. Thanks for the input.

another member of the “mesophaeum” group.

This might illustrate the problems to identify them (rarely illustrated to make the descriptions possible to interprete):
