Prolific Mushrooms in PNW
    #11166192 - 10/01/09 10:55 PM (8 years, 2 months ago)

Habitat:
I see these in gardens, amongst leaf litter, and in deciduous forest in the PNW (Vancouver, Canada) especially after a big rain.

Gills:
Light brown/tan, not attached, no ring. Evenly and well-spaced.

Stem:
About 1 1/2 to 2 in long, slender, tan colour, appears hollow and breaks easily. Some tender hairs at the base of the stem.

Cap:
Diameter is anywhere from 1/2 in to 3 in across, light to reddish brown, slightly slimy (note it was raining when I took photos), convex.

Spore print color:
in progress

Bruising:
not much; slightly darker brown

I seem to recall someone telling me the name of this mushroom- it sounds like cinnamon? Maybe that was a different mushroom. In any case, here are some photos.

I've seen probably around 1000 or more of those just in the last month in WA. I'm not certain yet what they are. Gimmee a few minutes to make a guess...

I think they are a Gymnopus. Maybe Gymnopus dryophilus. Those mushrooms are everywhere working overtime on recycling the forest... and I still don't like them. :grin:

I see them everywhere as well, and I like them.:headbanger:

They are obviosly doing a lot of the recycling work, and could probably have a lot of use in mycoforestry and mycorestoration.

They are purdy.

Marasmius strictipes? Hypholoma? Psathyrella?

I think I had it ID'd on my now-dead computer so I can't access my database.

hmm. definitely not hypholoma- I know those guys pretty well. I don't think they're marasmius because they pop up more either singly or in well-spaced clusters (i guess more like hypholoma) than organized rings. What about the fuzz at the base of the stem? Anyone recognize this feature?

I did find some other mushrooms on the same day that I thought were gymnopus dryophilus and they look much different- much redder cap and a truer cream/white colour in the gills and stem.

I'll see if i can fish up some better photos... the spore print I was working on was smushed by roommates. It looked like it was going to be brown, but that is a total guess.

Yes.  I have seen mushrooms that look quite similar to these.  I was not able to identify them, nor was anyone else.  Quite unfortunately, they did not keep well.  I found that they were extremely fragile, the cap and the stem very easily broken.  There also seemed to be a glutinous pellicle.  The spore print was chocolate brown.  Does this description sound familiar?

I saw them first at a Mycoblitz in Point Reyes while going through and identifying the mushrooms that were collected that day.  I was intrigued, but no one had any leads and the poor things turned to goop before I was able to preserve them. 
About a month later while hunting a landscaped area I found some of what I was sure were the same mushrooms, though this strain seemed more pale.  The same distinctive rhizomorphs on the stipe, delicate, slimy pellicle, and some times a partial veil dusted with brown spores clinging to the stipe.  I also remember a unique gill attachment, specific to these mushrooms and not like anything I have observed of other species.  It is hard to remember, but I think it was subdecurrent or perhaps with a decurrent tooth.  But the lamelle had an interesting curve to it, that sometimes creased near the center.  Hard to explain...

I don't think I was able to preserve any this time either, and sadly, the area I picked them has been bull dozed.  However, I think I saved some colonized wood chips and leafy debri....

This is a quick sketch approximation of what I recall the cross section looking like, since I stupidly did not get any photos.  This is basically to demonstrate how I was trying to describe the lamelle and its attachment.

CureCat: I'm learning lots from you and referring to alan's mycological glossary to get the best sense of the vocab. hehe. My experience is more in the field with old italian men or hippy foragers. I think your description matches my LBMs however I can't be sure. I'm going back to that location tomorrow so will collect a few in brown bags (YES they're slimy and fragile), hopefully do some prints, and cut a couple in half so as to get a good look at the lamellae. I don't recall it being so prominent as the one you sketched, though.

Also- I noticed some of the mushrooms, when more exposed, had hairs that were matted to the stem and thus, less noticable.

didjin: I'm including a couple more pics; the first being what i think to be 3 little gymnopus (or russula?) beside my mystery shroom and my hand in the foreground. The second is a better look at the cap.




Jeez, I figured everybody would know the exact name, since these suckers are EVERYWHERE in my hood. It's funny that it's always the commonest little brown ones that confuse me the most. Thanks for the feedback!

lamelle, etc [Re: CureCat]
    #11193851 - 10/06/09 03:35 PM (8 years, 2 months ago)

Hmm. Took a few of these home this time: they are much drier, so less gelatinous and delicate. The fuzz on the stem is somewhat sticky or tacky now, instead of being soft and wet.

The spore print is white.

Here are some more photos for reference, and a cross section of the cap. Definitely not the distinctively extended lamelle you drew, I don't think.

Yeah, that is something completely different.

I would reconsider Gymnopus.  How about G. peronatus?

I posted a similar (if not the same) species here:

http://www.mushroomobserver.org/22133?search_seq=837040

It was suggested to be G. peronatus, but there was some discussion on the accuracy of this.

ShockValue, that looks quite different to me, and not like G. peronatus.  I proposed another name (Rhodocollybia maculata var. scorzonerea) for your mushroom on MO.

Yeah, I'd say that's right: G. peronatus but not dryophilus.  Cheers- thanks for helping me investigate.

Glad I could help. 

I don't recall ever finding G. peronatus, but I'll definitely keep my eye out for them this Season.
