Limacella was a reasonable suggestion…

and as we know, proximity to an already identified collection is no guarantee as to the identity of a new mushroom.

that’s why I recommended to Britney that she look harder and search further, and check various, known qualities of Limacella against her mushroom in hand.

the reddish bands on the stipe were particularly striking and unusual; this ID coulda gone either way.

thanks Deb and Christian

I’d love to find a ruby red, slimy Limacella too!

It is almost certainly

L. subincarnata if it was in the same area as the others, and Else IDed similar ones from the area.

But because of the resemblance to the Limacella I found here last week, I thought I’d mention it in case you saw other ones in the area.

I saved this.

It’s in the fridge awaiting the moment I have no other dang adult-like responsibilities.
The reason I am so quick to say L. subincarnata is that I found it in the same place last year, ID’d by Else and posted to wiki.
None of my ‘Lepiota?’ observations from yesterday were slimy. All found within 50 or so feet of each other.
It rained for a week here, everything is waterlogged! Color variations in the cap must be from the moisture.

but Oregon isn’t “down here.” A limacella in OR should be rather slimy, or have evidence of dried former slime.

your specimen is no doubt too young for spores, but you COULD look at the gill trama: IF Limacella, it should have divergent trama like an amanita: the hyphal
orientation inside of the gill cut crosswise looks like a Xmas tree!

whatever its name, cool little mushroom.

The reason I suggested that
By: Christian (Christian Schwarz)

Was because of the fairly dark red color, and bands on the stipe. The Limacella we find down here dries out really fast, and is never super viscid.
