Observation 14190: Phaeocollybia R. Heim

When: 2008-11-14

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

Who: Daniel B. Wheeler (Tuberale)

No specimen available

This is an obviously older Phaeocollybia, but I have no clue which species. The cap is near black in color, and 2.5 inches across the flattened top; the stipe is ruby-red to red-garnet toning to close to black-red underground. About 1.5 inches of the 4-inch stipe I dug out was visible above ground, stipe largest at the base, nearly uniform for first 3 inches, then rapidly narrowing to attachment with the cap.
