second cap at the base of the tiny “original” – both were very dark, but photo manipulation seems to show an emerging second fruiting body.

that I recall. I will be out there again this weekend and will check that log in case it is still there.
I will also try some manipulation of the photo to add fill light: it will mess with the color but might bring out more detail. I’ll upload as separate image.

Martin,
I will be happy to send it (or what is left of it) to you. How? Just in bubble wrap?

My sense of it is that when I found it it was fresh, but not fully expanded yet. A very tough-feeling mushroom (I poked at it a bit and it was flexible).

I like the raven name!

was there any blue to this, or is it an artifact of the photograph (or my screen)?

was it fresh? – or is that the black residue of pitch in a dried mushroom? Penny, if you come across it again, can you send it to me? Until them I am calling this Leucoagaricus ravenellii for ‘little black raven’ Leucoagaricus.

No, did not pick or cut it.
