-but it doesn’t really show the stipe base well. The gills didn’t have any purple to them, just sort of brickish-orange; fading to a dull yellowish-orange near and at the gill edges. The stipe is fairly equal, stipe bases were slightly bulbous and covered in a thin layer of cottony-white mycelium. Veil tissue starts at about half way down the stipe with irregular bands and patches of thin cottony tissue from there(half-way)down.

I tried to find them again but that particular beech tree eluded me this evening. Maybe tommorow I can get better photos and make a collection.

got more photos?

-but I have been seeing a lot of small brown Corts. I guess in Telamonia? Kind of Galerina-ish looking? Yeah, all kinds. These here were light tan on the cap with white and purple/blue stems. Caps a little over an inch wide. They look pretty distinctive.

I was kinda trying to do your lighting technique but it turned out kinda sucky.

I’ve been seeing thousands of little brown corts that resemble these guys. Are they common up your way?
