Observation 84157: Pholiota lenta (Pers.) Singer

When: 2011-12-04

Collection location: Ricketts Glen State Park, Pennsylvania, USA [Click for map]

Who: Dave W (Dave W)

No specimen available

Kuo’s photos of Pholiota terrestris look somewhat like my collection seen here. But the Audubon account of P. terrestris does not match my collection very well.

On ground in needle duff.

Spore print dull brown. Spore shape variable… oval, bean shaped, somewhat asymmetrical.

on the spores, I don’t see any of the projections which B/B/F mentions for P. lenta. Pale color of my collection may be the result of the mushrooms enduring one or more morning of sub freezing temps.
