Observation 7660: Panaeolus papilionaceus (Bull.) Quél.

When: 2008-05-30

Collection location: Edgewood Blue, Wells Gray region, British Columbia, Canada [Click for map]

Who: Jason Hollinger (jason)

Specimen available

tiny mushroom, solitary, in dry dirt at edge of trail
ST: 30 × 1 mm, flexible and not breaking, no stain or bruise or bleeding, rosy tan darkening to blackish near base, minutely scurfy
CAP: ~7-8 mm, bell-shaped, dry, smooth, pale tan, solid color, tattered remnants of thin whitish veil hanging like regular teeth from marg, perhaps very faintly and broadly umbonate
GILLS: pale gray, attached, black spores clearly visible at 30x
SPORE: print black

Looks like a fair match, but by no means absolutely certain. This species (Panaeolus campanulatus) is supposed to grow on dung — was it on old scattered horse manure that I just didn’t notice? Horses do use the trail regularly… neigh, they are the very reason for the trail.
