This was cultivated in the front yard of an Oregon Mycological Society member, and brought in last night. It was grown in Lake Oswego, Multnomah Co., Oregon.

Yesterday’s OMS meeting was interesting. I went specifically to hear Dr. Lorelei Norvell’s talk on Phaeocollybia, and purchased her book “Phaeocollybia of Pacific Northwest North America”, by Lorelei L. Norvell & Ronald L. Exeter. I specifically was looking for a photographic reference similar to my collection of 14189. I did not find anything in her excellent photographs to match in my opinion. My material seems too large for P. phaeogaleroides; too dark for P. olivacea; while the stipe is similar to P. fallax, the cap is much too dark, and the gills without any hint of lilac to my eye.

I left the information for Dr. Norvell to check observation 14189.
