Observation 8218: Agrocybe Fayod

When: 2008-06-29

Collection location: Santa Rosa, Sonoma Co., California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Debbie Drechsler (debdrex)

No specimen available

Fruiting in a group in old wood chips under a magnolia. Pileus not viscid, margin inrolled in youth, vaguely conical in youth to plane or upturned in age. Gills pallid at first turning tan, some forking, sinuate. Spore print pale tan or buff. In youth the pileus was 3.2cm, in age the largest was 6.2. Stipe 6mm – 8mm. Height 3.8 cm – 5.6cm.
I tried to key this in Arora and got to Melanoleuca. The only one with spore color other than white, M. cognata occurs in far different habitat than that in which these were found.
