Observation 61412: Cyptotrama asprata group

When: 2010-11-15

Collection location: Colombia [Click for map]

Who: Martin Livezey (MLivezey)

No specimen available

This little photo was sent by my nephew will visiting Columbia, South America at a place called Los Angeles Beach. It is the only photo of fungi he took on his recent trip. My first thought was that it might be a Pholiota. Does anyone have experience with this? It is growing on wood.
