There are several Entoloma species

reported as similar to sinuatum. This species is reported to sometimes have whitish gills at first. These really look like what I generally ID as sinuatum. Found some yesterday, and I see that others have been MO posting similar Es east of the Rockies in NA.

wrong year by mistake…

Found that info in Arora MD page 174. It is in the Key to Lyophyllum & allies # 7.
“7. Found in sphagnum bogs, cap usually with an umbo; stalk thin fragile often long L. palustre
7.Similar to above but not growing in bogs. L rancidum and others. "

The gills do look really white

and it’s possible that it is a Lyophyllum but the cap really looks like a Entoloma and the gills are washed out a little, so…

Maybe Lyophyllum…

I think she (he?) fixed the obs. date here, it is now sept., except it is now Sept. 2010?? (Has that happened yet and I missed it? I hate it when I loose months like that…)

But this could be Lyophyllum really, there are a lot of different Lyophyllum out there in North America, most of them not described. Only a few have blackening staining, and only some are clustered. I’m not sure anyone has ever studied this genus in North America?

BTW – Where did you get info on those species that you mention?

(p.s. personally I kinda think this looks like an Entoloma, but those gills are awfully white…)

you found this in JAN ? in port Dover ?

I dont think Lyophyllum

This has a distinctive umbo on top. As far as I know, there are only two such Lyophyllums that have such an umbo L. palustre and L rancidum. The later favors bogs. Although the manner that it is growing is possible, solitary, most lyophllum have a clumping Characteristic from what I’v read. Also Lyophyllum have staining characteristics that I do not see on this.

Check spore color…

Check that this has white spores. It could have pinkish-brown spores, and turn out to be a young Entoloma.
