Observation 23397: Panaeolina foenisecii (Pers.) Maire

When: 2009-07-21

Collection location: Southeast Portland, Multnomah Co., Oregon, USA [Click for map]

Who: Daniel B. Wheeler (Tuberale)

No specimen available

Even in the midst of 90+ degree weather in Oregon, there are fungi to be found. This collection was found growing in 2-3 inch tall grass in a well-watered lawn at a local doctor’s office. Stipe is brittle, and broke off while I was trying to find the base. Stipe is white, long and narrow, without any linear markings. Pileus is 4mm across, semi-globose, grayish to tawny buff; gills gray and not obviously attached to the stipe. Paneolus springs to mind.
