Observation 93142: Rhodocollybia maculata (Alb. & Schwein.) Singer
When: 2012-04-20
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: These were growing in clusters, mostly under pine needles at ~ 4000 ft.
Did not get a full spore print but appeared whitish.
Spores were ~ 6.4-7.0 X 5.i-6.1 microns, smooth and seemingly partially dextrinoid in Melzers based on their appearance under the microscope.
The taste did not seem bitter to me but might suggest var. occidentalis, but other characteristics seem to point to Rhodocollybia maculata.
They did have a distinctive odor which I could not identify but it was not particularly pleasant.
