DETAILED PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION:

CAP: Hemispheric becoming flat with age. ~ ¼ – 1” wide. Color varies depending on dampness (i.e., hygrophanous) with a majority of the specimens in this sample having a pale brown color on the upper half and a darker, hazel-brown on the remainder. Margin is striate, with ivory-or-dingy-cream-like color on the edges from the veil. Flesh is thin, fragile, and buff colored throughout when sliced.

GILLS: Pale Buff-Brown, becoming Cinnamon-Brown with age. They are primaily , adnate with some being sub-decurrent, crowded, but equally spaced. Light-to-medium brown where cut or bruised.

STIPE: ~ ½ – 1.5” tall, thick, equal, rounded to flattened, hollow, smooth, with a dingy medium-brown color. Little is left of the veil, with the most being found on the Cap Margin. At the very end there is a collection of what appear to be Dense Mycelia.

SPORES: Pale Orange-brown.

MYCELIA: White, very dense, quite a bit of it is above the top layer of the dead wood and appears to be an extension of the Stipe. Appears to run shallow in the piece of wood, ~ ¼”.

The upper group is fairly dry, hence the lighter-colored top. Whereas, the lower specimens are much damper and have a more consistent coloring over most of the cap.
