Collection location: Little Skookum Inlet, Mason Co., Washington, USA [Click for map]

Who: Steve (Lokness)

No specimen available

These four pictures were all close together. The top picture with the ivory stipe is very mature. The middle two picture are of the same mushroom. The fourth tiny fungi is within maybe 10 inches of this observation. I can’t be sure it is the same fungi obviously, but we have very little showing right now, so I suspect it is. There are four separate sites of this fungi – with multiple specimens – that I have been watching. Three are close to each other, but the fourth is on the other side of a tidal influenced creek – so no way it is the same fungi. Gliophorus psittacina are close but there is not a hint of green on any of the fungi from the four sites just mentioned. The largest of the samples are bigger than a usual G.psittacina – over 5cm. Broken forest of mixed trees; red alder, maple, Pacific Yew, Doug Fir and Western Red Cedar

Caps look striated, although does not show well here.

I was willing to force this observation into G.psittacina, but with this ungreen small guy, I’m now doubtful. Plus – they just do not look like G.psittacina.
