Notes: MSC 378494; cited in Hallen, Watling & Adams (2003) Taxonomy and toxicity of Conocybe lactea and related species. Mycol Res 107(8):969-979. Exemplar ITS and nuclear ribosomal sequence are in GenBank as AY194552 and AY293594, respectively.
Cap invariably slimy; collapses under own weight. Button visible by approximately 8 pm; slimy expanded caps on fragile, translucent white stems by morning; mushroom has usually disappeared (shriveled/collapsed) by approx. 10 am. Occupies lawns; fruits from June to September in Michigan. A bacterium is invariably co-cultured with this fungus, which appears by DNA data to be an infected taxon closely related to Conocybe albipes (= North American Conocybe lactea). See also .
