When: 2017-11-18

Collection location: Franklin Co., Virginia, USA [Click for map]

Who: Cody Morgan (Cody)

Specimen available

Growing alone from the base of a large oak

Cap appeared to be faintly striate but the cold wind dried it out I guess. Dark squamules in the center.

Stem white, hollow/slightly stuffed with white basal mycelium.

Gills looked white from the underside but after cutting it in half the faces looked greyish, looks nearly free or attached by a slight notch, I cant really tell. Attempting a spore print but it looks pretty dried out from the cold wind, will update later if it drops a print.

Similar odor to a spermatic inocybe but different, fairly unpleasant.

Possibly a pluteus? I cant tell if this is considered “free gills” from my cross section, input on that greatly appreciated.
