Observation 67203: Pholiota (Fr.) P. Kumm.
When: 2011-04-27
No herbarium specimen
0 Sequences

A very large wasp was building its nest in the log (look in the middle of the photos), so I was not able to get very good pictures. first photo is from April 27 2011, the next two are from when i returned on May 9 2011. Sadly when I returned they had rotted significantly, and the wasp was still there.

Gymnopilus was my gut instinct as well…

at least that’s what the last two photos look most like to me. the first one shows no brown anywhere and looks much more like Stropharia or Leratiomyces. curious.

Not Cortinarius because of the substrate (on wood) – Pholiota can have a cobwebby veil and stringy scales on the stipe too.

I wouldn’t either

but I think that the spore colour has faded in the last pictures. It seems like they were much darker, almost black from the fresh ones in the first picture.

With the gill color

in the last photos, I wouldn’t guess Stropharia
