Observation 62977: Galerina marginata (Batsch) Kühner

When: 2011-01-31

Collection location: Goldcrest Neighborhood, Olympia, Washington, USA [Click for map]

Who: Drew Henderson (Hendre17)

No specimen available

Cap:2-6.5 cm somewhat viscous when wet.
Stalk: 3-8cm. greyish, blackening at bottom- evidence of white mycelium present.
Gills- Yellow-to rust brown.
Spore print- rust colored.

This was formerly called Galerina autumnalis- and usually fruits in the autumn(hence the name).

This season has proved to be extremely variable in temperature and precipitation and thus- we are having these strange fruiting occurrences. I have found early spring Enteloma, Stropharia and spring season Hygrophorus all fruiting this week! Definitely weird stuff for January.
