Collection location: Fitzwilliam, New Hampshire, USA [Click for map]

Who: Christian (Christian Schwarz)

Specimen available

Growing on a moss-covered bank along a trail.

Note widely-spaced, arcuate gills, omphalinoid cap (becoming umbilicate in age), and gray-brown color.

Microscopically, boxy-isodiametric spores 4-5 sided, cheilocystidia abundant narrowly lageniform and somewhat flexuous, and clamps present.

I originally identified it as Entoloma rhodoclyix (Lasch) M.M. Moser but Tim suggested this North American name for a very similar fungus. I wonder what genetic comparison would reveal…
