Observation 64081: Panellus serotinus (Pers.) Kühner

When: 2011-03-04

Collection location: Blacksburg, Virginia, USA [Click for map]

Who: Mark Prosser (mark prosser)

No specimen available

A saprobic, found along the length of a moist, decaying limb, next to the edge of a flowing stream. All specimens from the smallest, newly emerging to the larger, more established had the same light brown cap and gill color. I was considering one of the Crepidotus family, possibly C. mollis, though there is no cap scaling visible. The washing of the mushrooms when the water level becomes higher may be a factor in the cap features and appearance. Any help is appreciated.
