Going with this id mostly from over-all look. I could put them under the scope if needed… but I hoping someone can tell me that these look like the right id.

It looks like I have some fir mixed in with the spruce.

Marasmius should then be cohaerens I think …

Yeah, I see fir needles in this first pic … so I think the mystery is solved now ;)

Wait – isn’t that fir?

There in the photo, isn’t that a scale from a fir cone? It seems that there is fir mixed in with my spruce? I found some stuff on the fir and spruce cones (Picea abies and Abies alba…):



The spruce cone looks about right, so I do have spruce?

No real smell…

There wasn’t any real smell, and the stipe was very smooth…

I could put them under the scope, if there is something quick to look for here…

Wrong ID ;(

M. anomalus grows on grass roots in open grassland. This species is either M. torquescens, M. wynnei or M. cohaerens. I tend to the latter but what about smell and is the stipe hairy or not?
