Observation 14082: Laccaria ochropurpurea (Berk.) Peck

When: 2008-10-08

Collection location: Atchison, Kansas, USA [Click for map]

Who: C.Wick (C.Wick)

No specimen available

Notes:
Many caps of these mushrooms in my area have these fascinating ‘explosive’ tops? Is anyone familiar with these or why they are like this. The gill structure is actually growing from the top…no light shines thru…it’s not like a stick was poking them and the cap grew around.
