but I respectfully disagree. I’ve collected this mushroom several times.

This particular individual was extremely water-logged, but it’s the same undescribed Conocybe sp. that Douglas Smith is (or was) working on describing.

I’ll see if I can get more pictures. And I have an herbarium sample if anyone is interested.
