When: 2010-07-25

Collection location: Mount Desert Island, Maine, USA [Click for map]

Who: damon brunette (damonbrunette)

No specimen available

These were found not in abundance in pine mulch. They were most definitely BROWN with a tad touch of green in them. Is there anything else this could be that would be TOTALLY slimy? The radial grooves showed well through the cap. Some were bell shaped and some perfectly round.
