Who: Douglas Smith (douglas)

Specimen available

Boy, just saw one on Thursday, and then yesterday, they were everywhere, hundreds popped up in the grass. Features to note, the gills are pallid at first, but soon turn a deep dark brown, and when really young you can see bits of veil matterial at the edges of the caps. Very fragile stipes.

I’ve dried a few, and I’ll try to get shots of the spores on Monday.
