This one is the big find of the week. There were a few days of frost, so not much found, most everything all gone this week. But these were kinda hard to see, only one was just poking up from the oak leaf duff, and only part of the cap. When I picked it up, I then noticed the other humps nearby, and there were a couple dozen of these in this one area. They seem to fruit 2-3 inches below ground and push their way up through the dirt and duff.
They are largish size, and at first I thought they were Tricholoma, although I haven’t see some with this universal veil tissue on the cap like this. But then looking at the fiberous caps, and the darker gills of the older ones it came to be later – Inocybe. At home the spore print was brown confirming it.
Looking it up, with the brown caps, and the white veil tissue on the center of the caps got me to the species.
