Observation 97199: Collybia bakerensis A.H. Sm.
When: 2012-06-12
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: I didn’t know that young specimens were so hairy! Found beneath a long plank of red-fir bark laying on the ground at fairly high elevation.

This is neither a Gymnopus nor Collybia as far as I can tell. Problem box.

would a comparison of pileipellis characters not be enough detail. I’ll see if I can rally to compare more later.

Well… I was hoping for more detail in your reasons than, well it makes me feel funny.

The pileipellis (especially as seen in the second photo here) is unlike any Gymnopus I know of.
The gestalt is somehow different.

Why not Gymnopus?
