Observation 97750: Inocybe (Fr.) Fr.
When: 2012-06-18
No herbarium specimen

Notes: This seems like an Inocybe to me, with the fibrous cap and the footed basal bulb. The only weird thing is the slimy and tacky cap when wet. It dried with a piece of pine needle stuck to the cap, so it is viscid.

Inocybe vatricosus / Inocybe ventricosus?

I found reference to viscid Inocybe in “British fungus-flora: A classified text-book of mycology” by George Massee.
“Agaricus (Inocybe)vatricosus, Fries, Epicr.,p.177; Cke., Hdbk., p160.
Damp naked places in pine woods, also on wood. A minute species, remarkable for the glabrous viscid disc of the pileus, and the truly silky margin.

Anyone have any light to shed on viscid Inocybe?
