G. marginata is fine…

On well rotten wood is where you will find G. marginata. The spores here are certainly brown, the color on the fibrous veil there. On rotten wood like this, with the brown fibrous veil that is just below the edge of the cap, and the white fibrous covering of the stipe, this is going to be G. marginata. It is just that there are different forms of this species, and if didn’t get more info for the different forms, thats ok…

Very Rotten Log

This was on a VERY rotted log, hardwood of some kind, most likely oak in
that area, in a protected recess in the root ball end. Didn’t get a spore
print, but the ring remnant looks rusty. I did not think to test the cap for viscidity.

On wood, viscid?

Was this attached to wood? Was the wood hardwood or conifer? Was the cap surface viscid or not?
