Observation 14556: Pluteus Fr.

When: 2008-11-17

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

Who: C.Wick (C.Wick)

Specimen available

This very furry group of mushrooms were found on unk. rotted wood…I have collected what was remaining after a good freeze. They have a pinkish-peach spore print…not very heavy.
Cap is approx. 1 1/2inch across when full extended. The ‘fur’ (mycelium?) extents all thru-out the wood base that these are growing on giving me question about if they’re the actual rooting system or another organism.
Very pale almost white when first seen…turning tannish as ages.
It has been fairly dry lately…however…there are other mushroom species growing around this particular spot including Deadly Gallerina (G. autumnalis) and a previously unlisted speices for Kansas…Pendulous-disk Polypore (Porodisculus penulus) and a couple unk’s. All but the P.Penulus also show a ‘furring’ of the base of the stems.
There are photos showing this available however the amount is definately more pronounced with these paler mushrooms.
If there are any ideas I’m open to them.
