Habitat: growing in northern BC, Canada. On wood chips. i think they were pine but im not sure.
Gills: attached to stem very close together. start off a light-ish yellow and darkening with age to a brown-rusty brown color. in older specimens gills come down just below the margin
Stem: about 5-6 cm long 1-3 cm thick. hollow but very tough. dark yellow to brown color and turn light yellow just at the cap. ring is present from veil.
Cap: biggest ones are about 2 inches across. yellow orange color. scaly. older mushrooms are cracked so you can see the light yellow flesh beneath. they are mostly flat in older mushrooms young mushrooms have veils.
Spore print color: could be rusty brown but some might call it brown
Bruising: none noticed
Other information:no noticable smell and havent done a taste test.
im hoping for gymnopilus but im thinking they are cortinarius. any insight? and is there an easy way to tell them apart? sorry if the pics arent good enuff. crappy built in webcam. thanks
looks alot like Agrocybe sp, but Hypholoma sp also comes to mind when I catch a glimpse of that spore print, could you post a picture of the print itself and maybe some pictures of the actual growing mushrooms in their natural habitat?
