Who: Daniel B. Wheeler (Tuberale)

No specimen available

Stipe is 1.5-2 inches long, becoming more broad at the top than at the bottom; mostly reddish brown; cap very small, 1/4-inch wide, inrolled; appears to have yellowish gills; stipe is hollow, may have centralized depression leading into the center of the stipe, similar to Gomphus floccosus. Cap looks nearly aborted, but is actually tightly inrolled, almost obscuring the ridges, which are similar to a chanterelle, but with unusual minute projections. I think I’m going to have to go back tomorrow and collect this thing and dry it, and try to get a spore print. Gills are yellow or yellowish-white, and decurrent. Stipe has striations on it. May be growing on wood, but found it growing (I thought) on the ground. Tiny, easy to overlook. Saw probably 5-10 of these things.
