Observation 79314: Conocybe Fay.

When: 2011-10-11

Collection location: Lake Merritt, Oakland, California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Katherina (Khaug)

No specimen available

I can’t entirely tell what this mushroom is, as it fits characteristically with Conocybe or Bolbitius, but the wavy gills are throwing me off. The specimen was found in grass, on the east side of Lake Merritt, in Oakland. Very thin, fragile stem(which broke off as I was handling it), cap is fleshy, and slightly translucent (can see the wavy gills through the cap), and spore print is brown-toned.
Any input would be helpful!
