E. sinuatum has gill color

which begins as “…whitish to pale yellowish at first…” to quote Roody. Virtually all of the sinuatum I have IDed showed the more mature pinkish gills. The whitish capped vivid yellow gilled E is called (perhaps as yet, unofficially) E. luridum. Roody has a nice account in the “West Virginia” book.

There are other species of E which appear similar to E. sinuatum.

Entoloma sinuatum is a pale capped, yellow gilled mushroom.

Although NA field guides do apply the name to taxa like these…

Also, I suspect that comments can be edited only by the author of the comment, while site descriptions can be edited by the community. And a series of comments can become fragmented or disjointed as a site description. One possible redesign might be to merge a location page with its associated site description page to provide a flexible format for maps, photos, and descriptions. Part of the page could be edited only by the author and part of it could be edited by the public.

by posting it as a comment. As near as I can tell, that’s currently the only way. The problem with posting it as a comment is that if additional comments are made it will get pushed down to the bottom of the page by them.

Try playing around with it twizzler. I bet you can get that photo on the same page as the map.

The first image was of a mushroom found hours later on the other side of the park. I removed it. All remaining images are from a dingle large patch.

Mixed collection?

the first picture looks like a Clitocybe sp. the rest look like a Entoloma

Just as an experiment, I added your photo to the Public Description page associated with the Babcock State Park locality page. You can edit the Public Description page and change the “640” to “320” or “960” for a smaller or larger image (or remove the code entirely to make the photo disappear). Adding a comment to the Babcock State Park locality page with that bit of code in it should put the photo on the same page as the map.

Thanks kitparrish

Thank you for creating the public description. Right on man! I see how to do it now.

I like this picture too :)

A nice view of West Virginia from Babcock State Park. I’d like to add it to the location page, but I could not find a way to do it. I’ll leave it here for now to attract attention to these little brown jobs that no one has yet identified.

wrong one…
