No specimen available

Mushrooms identified as Omphalotus olivascens by Alan Rockefeller.

Found growing at the base of a possibly-dying oak tree in a mixed oak/bay woodland, and the entire clump of mushrooms was over a foot in width. They had a scent practically identical to that of the common white mushrooms in grocery stores. Barely-detectable glow from the gills when brought into a completely dark room.
