Habitat:
Western WA.  In large clusters.  Wood chip piles.

Gills:
Creamy.  Not attached.

Stem:
4" long, 1/2" diameter. Cream color (same as gills)

Cap:
This particular picture shows a pretty flat one.  Most of them have a nice bell shape to them with a little flair at the margin.  Looks like dark leather.

Spore print color:
In proccess.  But initial color on foil looks to be cream (I barely have a trace, so that's unreliable)

Bruising:
None noticed.

Other information:
This mushroom has an odor.  I can't quite place it.  My buddy said almonds, but I think he's crazy (We just found A.augustus, so I think he's stuck on it :wink:)  Almost vegetable of some kind.

Laccaria sp. maybe? Probably not.

I don't know, it's a strange and cool mushroom.

Not Laccaria sp, looks more like a Pluteus sp, although, I have absolutely no idea which Pluteus might look like that mushroom does.

Very interesting find indeed, do u have anymore photos of it, possibly in habitat?
Does it smell like cucumbers? (you mentioned vegetables)

Hrm.. I'm having a hard time shoe-horning mine into either pluteus or laccaria. 

Let me get my wife to take a deep whiff.  She has a sensitive nose :smile:

If cyanophilus says it isn't Laccaria sp., then he is probably right. It was just my initial guess.

I give up for tonight. I'll pack my camera to work tomorrow and get some habitat and cluster shots.

Good.  It's not a Pluteus though.  The stem, gills, gill attachment and cap all rule that out.  I'm not even sure I would call that a free gill attachment.  It looks as if the gills pulled away from the stem at the cap interface.  Odd mushrooms do that sometimes.

I have a photo of an Entoloma I took last year that did the same thing.  If I get to it, I'll post it.

Maybe someone else wants to give this one a try.  :confused2:

Well it took me a few days to get back there, and they're in rough shape.  But maybe the pics will give us a clue by they way they are growing:

Hmmm they do look a little like a Pluteus.  I have never encountered that one in the literature or in the field.

it was the clustering part that I must have read past, didnt realize it til he posted the picture :thumbup:

the reason I thought they might smell like cucumbers is Macrocystidia cucumis which growing on woodchips as well, sometimes by the millions, every woodchip bed in Paulsbo, WA fruits them by the million.

Bingo, thanks Cyan.


I worked in Poulsbo for about 3 years, and still drive through that part of the county on a regular basis :smile:

It's funny that he says
Quote:

In fact, every time I have found Gymnopus luxurians, Leucocoprinus cepaestipes has been fruiting alongside it.




Because that is dead on.  There were hundreds of L.cepaestipes in the area.

Yeah Poulsbo.

I often find Gymnopus luxurians, Leucocoprinus cepaestipes, and Gymnopilus luteofolius all fruiting from the same pile.

Infact, of the last 3 patches of luteofolius I found, L. cepaestipes and G. luxurians were everywhere, and they all seemed to start popping up at the same time as each other.

Indicator species? :naughty:

Sounds like it to me.  Right now the only "indicator" species we are having is Chicken of the Woods.  And it is an indicator that more Chicken of the Woods will be found.  Right now I am swimming in them.  Tomorrow I plan a little excursion to a new habitat.  Hopefully something else will be fruiting.

I've only found G.luteofolius once, and it was from the same pile of wood chips that the pictures of this mushroom were from :smile:
