Observation 48597: Gymnopus ocior (Pers.) Antonín & Noordel.

When: 2010-06-21

Collection location: Clinton, Washington, USA [Click for map]

Who: Sam Linse (BearwoodSam)

No specimen available

Found in small groups in a localized area in mixed coniferous forest at 425’ elevation. The stipe is oddly flattened in most of them, and always brightly two toned colored from light orange to pale yellow. The cap is nut brown when small and fades to cream. Gills are white but I do not have a spore print. They smelled strongly of mushrooms and maybe some anise mixed in. Hard for me to judge smells. It was pleasant though. I’ve tried to find this in several references but have no idea at this point. Thanks for your input!

I think I agree with Irene here. It keys out pretty nicely at http://www.svims.ca/council/Gymnop.htm
One thing is for sure, it is a beauty.
