Observation 66764: Pholiota (Fr.) P. Kumm.

This small group of fungi were viscid, firm, (not delicate) and found growing on the forest floor. The images are not sharp, but probably good enough to get ID.
The largest specimen was about 2.5cm tall. There was no aroma and I did not bisect.

Hygrophorus is very much a guess. It’s probably one of those observations that you can’t be certain of without microscopy. To answer your question forked gills are not a requirement for Hygrophorus.


Thanks for the comment and ID….. question..
My impression was that my loaded image had loose gills and not forked. Does this apply to Hygrophorus sp.
