Galerina / Gymnopilus

I’ll do my best!

- almost all Gymnopilus are bigger/stockier/tougher than almost all Galerina
- – Galerina marginata(/autumnalis) are the only big ones I know
- – Gymnopilus bellulus & picreus are the only little ones I know

Galerina have ~conic caps a lot and Gymnopilus don’t
Galerina are way more likely to be way more striate
Gymnopilus are cespitose often, Galerina (almost?) never
“Gracile” is a good word for a lot of Galerina but not any Gymnopilus I know of

If anyone has more suggestions/corrections that’d be cool

vs. moist, smooth and lined in Galerina?

Thanks, Jacob

as I have never found Gymnopilus and both it and Galerina seem to have the same color of spores how can I differentiate the two in the field?
