Observation 84404: Panaeolus (Fr.) Quél.

When: 2011-12-01

Collection location: Corvallis, Benton Co., Oregon, USA [Click for map]

Who: Oreganic (Eric Badeau)

No specimen available

These were found growing in my back yard. I first found these pinning in Mid-November, and they fruited up until about December 1st in an isolated area of my back yard. This is the first time I had found them fruiting in my yard, and I suspect they fruited from spores I dragged in from some Cinctulus that I found in September. All of these specimen had a jet black spore print.

I have both spore prints and dried material. And yes Byrain – I really don’t know why I never got gill shots. I honestly just figured them to be Cinctulus.

Do you have any dried material?

It doesn’t look extremely like Panaeolus cinctulus to me either, but I really don’t know what else it could be? They were really tiny specimen; the largest one I found had a pileus maybe 1-1.5 cm wide with a 5 cm stipe. But the stipe bruised with a slightly red hue – which is a trait I found consistent with the Cinctulus I have found. And of course, the jet-black spore print makes me lean towards the proposed name. I uploaded another couple pictures of them at younger stages.

Umm, I don’t know what you have here

But it doesn’t look like other Panaeolus cinctulus I have seen.
