When: 2009-11-26

Collection location: Blacksburg, Virginia, USA [Click for map]

Who: Mark Prosser (mark prosser)

No specimen available

Specimen found in mossy area beneath scrub conifers on moist hillside near Blacksburg, Virginia U.S.A.. This specimen was small at 1-2 inch cap and 2 inch stem, with familiar Cystoderma stem. I’m hopeful that someone can offer their thoughts about the specie, if in fact this is a Cystoderma, or something else. Thanks, Mark

I believe that the stem/granules appear consistent with a Cystoderma however the gills appear to be more distant from one another than would be expected. Possibly a version of C. amianthinum. Any ideas on identification would be appreciated. Thanks, Mark Prosser
