I am pretty sure this is a second sample from the unknown Trih. I saw a few weeks ago. Although this one is pretty dried out. But the other fresh one showed signs of the concentric rings of scales on the stipe starting, and the brown stains on the gills.

I’m going to be at the Fungus Fair in Santa Cruz on Sunday (Jan 14th), and hope to spend some time with this sample and perhaps get a better id.

1/29/2007 – Ok, now think this is a dried out T. manazanitae after comparing the fresh version to description in Agaracales of CA. But since this one is so dried out it is still a little uncertain here.

This one is too dried out to probably tell anything about. But one thing, T. manzanitae in the discription says the lanellae should be dull yellow in age, where here they are brown. And T. dryophilum the lamellae stain brown in age.

3/3/2008 – Ok, forget all that. Getting back to this, I found two more the same stature and color as this one, and similarly kinda dried out. The ones this year I was able to check the spores, and they are Cortinarius like, not Tricholoma like. Although it was similar to size, shape and color as the T. manzanitae.
