Observation 11400: Limacella illinita (Fr. : Fr.) Murrill

When: 2008-09-18

Collection location: Forest near Elgin St., Pembroke, Ontario, Canada [Click for map]

Who: Paul Derbyshire (Twizzler)

No specimen available

Found near the mushrooms of obs. 11239, which were first observed on the fifteenth, at which time little else was nearby except for some Clavulinopsis laeticolor (obs. 11240). However, that area had numerous other fungi on the 18th, including several tiny agarics (obs. 11323 and 11325), more Clavulinopsis laeticolor (obs. 11324), and some small but non-tiny mushrooms other than these ones (not photographed). I counted at least seven species in the general area, and perhaps eight, including our old friend Cortinarius alboviolaceus (obs. 11401), on the 18th.

The first photograph was taken on the 18th. The second and third are from the 21st, when the only fungi observed there were all the Clavulinopsis laeticolor, the Cortinarius alboviolaceus, and the mushrooms of obs. 11239 (also updated) and 11323.
