Observation 26165: Cuphophyllus lacmus (Schumach.) Bon

When: 2009-10-02

Collection location: Forest near Elgin St., Pembroke, Ontario, Canada [Click for map]

Who: Paul Derbyshire (Twizzler)

No specimen available

Notes:
And the wildcard fungus of the week is … these little grey-pink mushrooms found in Zone 06 in moderate numbers in one small area. I thought at first they were entolomas, poisonous-looking ones, but … decurrent gills, not notched? Eh. Now Hygrophorus and Gomphidiaceae and others pop to mind.

Non-brittle flesh and fibrous stipe rules out Russulales at least.
