6/2/17
Added photo of dried specimens. Some that turned black after handling, unlike the other cluster that wasn’t handled.

Growing clustered in wood chips on a recently semi-cleared lot. These were under tulip poplar trees. Other trees in immediate area included oak, hickory, and ash. Largest was about 2" tall. Smell was mild but mushroomy. Taste test was bitter. Not able to get spore print. The ones I handled turned dark brown, especially the caps. Stems appeared hollow when fresh.

an agaric suffering the initial stage of a Hypomyces infection…? The gills appear to be somewhat contorted.
