Sorry for having my first post as a request, but it is my first time hunting mushrooms and we made an interesting find. It was a lone mushroom, but it wasn’t in a group or anything.
Woods in the Pacific Northwest (Puget Sound area). Found it growing out from under a log.
The gills are whitish-grey and free.
3-4 inches long, diameter may only be a few millimeters (2-3), white at the bottom and top, darker in the middle, smooth, I can’t tell if it’s hollow or not since it’s so thin.
1/2 to 3/4 inches across, started out as a light rimmed that went to a dark grey as approached the center. Now that it has dried a little, it has turned more brown/tan. It is semi-smooth (a couple ridges/bumps radially out from center), conical.
Spore print color:
Dot in center of cone, is a dark spot.
Thank you guys so much! I hope to be posting more finds soon, and definitely as autumn approaches.
