When: 2008-07-23

Collection location: Highlands, North Carolina, USA [Click for map]

Who: Debbie Viess (amanitarita)

Specimen available

Notes:
This is a mycena that does a great impersonation of a psathyrella…with a medium sized fruit body, dark, purple-brown gills and a hygrophaous cap. We’d have still been barking up that wrong tree if Coleman hadn’t gotten a WHITE sporeprint! Those darn mushrooms can fool ya…

Specimen at Chez Viess-Rust herbarium.
