Collection location: Larch Mountain, Multnomah Co., Oregon, USA [Click for map]

Who: Daniel B. Wheeler (Tuberale)

No specimen available

Only have the 1 photo of this, and it was hard to focus on. Mushroom tiny, probably less than 1/10th an inch across; perhaps 1/2-inch tall, arising from a well-moss covered Western hemlock log (see twig in foreground), bell-shaped, greenish-brown in center, the light tan, with dark tan and buff tan striations on cap, and finally with a white edge at cap rim. This has to be one of the smallest mushrooms I’ve ever seen, and it was pretty well concealed. Had I not been trying to get pictures of other mushrooms growing from the same log, I probably would not have seen this at all.
