Observation 71764: Conocybe smithii Watling
When: 2011-07-16
Who: wiscokid
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: found in 2006, 2010 – now again :))
Notice the extremely hygrophanus caps – the striations of the cap when young – and indented when mature and dry
The stems are brittle with fine silky fibrils
The stems have a larger base only sometimes bulbous
Older specimens are often blue at the base – from being beaten around in the wind
The immature fruits are sporting vibrant colored orange caps – and bright white stems
They do bruise from damage all the way up the stipe ( mostly seen at the base )
Never seen the caps bruise


A nice shot showing one mature dry one from top to bottom – bruising and all
A shot showing a tiny small immature fruit – healthy new all white stem
Another immature fruit – with fibrils on stipe visible
