Who: Dave W (Dave W)

Specimen available

At first I did not recognize this as Entoloma. Nathaniel Whitmore observed the remains of cortinas, which only served to deepen the mystery, which was evetually solved when pentagonal spores were observed under the scope.

Still mysterious to me…?

When I saw the cortinas…

my first thought was Inocybe. I didn’t get a spore drop from this collection. But a smash mount of some material yielded plenty of these pentagonal spores.

It’s possible that I mixed up some collections. But as far as I know, the spores in the photo belong to the mushrooms in the other photo.

No odor detected.
