Observation 93366: Psathyrella delineata (Peck) A.H. Sm.

When: 2012-04-26

Collection location: Fulton Co., Georgia, USA [Click for map]

Who: AmatoxinApocalypse (AmatoxinApocalypse)

Specimen available

This is a new one for me, I have never seen these before.

Growing under oak and pine (loblolly)

The spore color looks blackish but I have not actually taken a print yet, am in the process of doing so. I am saying blackish because of what I observed near the apex of the stipe.

The pileus is dry, very thick, they smell faintly fungoid/sweet. The stipe is very thick, solid at the base becoming hollow near the top. Orange/brown staining which can be seen in the second picture.

yes the partial veil fragments sure do remind me of Agrocybe, also the gill color and thick cap.
