The caps on these were what I would call tan. They were fully open, so I could guess that they might have been darker when younger, and I moved the cone into full sunlight which might have washed out some of the color in the pic.

I described the gills as close. A better description would be to say they were crowded.

Mushrooms Demystified, Audubon’s, and Mushrooms of Northeastern North America don’t list a Strobilurus from my area. I’m too far north for S. conigenoides , and way too far east for S. trullisatus. George Barron’s Mushrooms of Northeast North America does however list Baeospora myosura as growing in the region.

Now I’m really confused…ah, such is mycology!

Usually the confusion is with some Strobilurus. Baeospora is usually more tan to grey-brown, but can be lighter. When it is lighter it can be hard to tell from Strobilurus. Baeosopra should have tight shallow gills, and a Strobilurus less so, but that is fairly hand waving…

Sorry, I don’t have one…

White, close and shallow if I remember correctly. This didn’t strike me as being a Mycena (the caps isn’t really stiate), but I very well could be wrong. Collybia, perhaps?

Shot of gills?
