Observation 63033: Entoloma Fr. ex P. Kumm.

When: 2011-01-31

Collection location: Los Posadas State Forest, Napa Co., California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Byrain

Specimen available

Found growing from the forest floor, apparently colonizing bits of rotting wood from pine, oak, and hemlock mixed in the needle duff. The spore print was pink and I’m saving it and some dry specimens for when microscopy can be done.

The shiny, striate and hygrophanous cap, and fairly distant gills point towards Entoloma – but the question about genus can be settled easily by checking the spores.

One of the specimens (Unpictured) was clearly attached to and colonizing a piece of a male cone from one of the pines.
