Adolph, I returned to the site…

and there were a few remaining fruit bodies of what I believe to be the same species as this and obs 279504. This type mushroom appears to change its appearance quite a bit; both in shape and color (hygrophanous caps). I initially made two different observations based upon the differing appearances.

For info regarding KOH reaction see obs 279837. The mushrooms seen in each of 279504, 279505, and 279837 were all found in the same 2 square yard area.

No, sorry.

I should have spared one of these for chemical reactions. Thanks for the question, Adolph. It’ll help me remember next time.

Do you think it makes sense to apply chemicals to dehydrated material? I’ve got mixed results with this in the past.

KOH or NH4OH reaction?
