Observation 81497: Inocybe terrigena (Fr.) Kühner

When: 2011-10-21

Collection location: Thoiry, France [Click for map]

Who: Douglas Smith (douglas)

No specimen available

Found under oaks, beech, fir.

When I found these, I thought they were Pholiota. They were growing in clumps on a rotting log, although, yes, a half-buried rotting log, but they were growing off the log. But the colors are wrong, esp. the gills, and the cap surface is a little off for Pholiota. At the meeting on Monday, many others thought these were Pholiota also, until Oscar took one sniff and proclaimed, Inocybe. The scope was pulled out, and one quick look at a gill, and yes, Inocybe. So, here it is, a rather Pholiota looking Inocybe for you.
