The two in the right are thought to be another species of entoloma. The one on the left is the mystery mushroom of the hour. There were many growing directly in moss, but you are right, I don’t have a picture to prove it. I do have the dried fruit bodies – spores should confirm or de...

I was convinced while gathering and with the comment from Pulk that this could not be Laccaria even though the stem has some of the characteristics that one would expect in Laccaria. The gills were not convincing and neither was the cap. Surprise is okay! I don’t know if the spores are mature because I lifted them from the gill of a dried specimen. I currently have no way to measure them accurately, at least that I know of.

Quite possible that this is a Laccaria. The spores appear globular echinulate. Have you observed mature spores? Can you measure them?

Usually Sphagnurus paluster parasite mosses (Tephrocybe palustris) grows in the foam. I see no moss or sphagnum in the photos.

Tough genus – Claude, what do you think of the photos linked here – accurate?
