Hi all, this is not only my first post, but my first year out hunting. Please let me know if I am not following proper etiquette.

Habitat: PNW. I have found these all over in garden beds that have a sort of dark mulch in them, real fibrous wood, bark dust stuff. No trees around, low shrubs and plants but they definitely like the bark dust they are in and they seem inclined to grow right between the sidewalk and the edge of the garden.

Gills: Tan color, free, and distantly spaced

Stem: 1 1/2 to 3 inches, very skinny, smooth, they feel fairly hollow, the start (at the cap) a real light tan and quickly fade to brown for most of the stem and have a white clubbed foot.

Cap: 1 - 2 inches, dark brown in the middle fading to a tan color on the edges, concave, smooth, with a little flare out on the ends, some are very wavy, some are split like a clover, and some are just plain old concave.

Spore print color:
Brown with a hint of yellow or maybe green

Bruising: I have not noticed any bruising

Other information: I must apologize for the quality, my camera ran out of batteries and all I had was my phone camera. I will post better pictures when I can.

yeah i know what all the active ones look like and what their traits are. i mainly focus on actives. i've also found that same species before. i'm getting better at IDing nonactives, but i usually only bother when i'm really curious. i'd be better at it if the names weren't so damn complicated! i know how to spell many species names, but have no idea how to even pronounce most of them. i think lots of hunters are the same way because we've self-taught ourselves with books and the internet.
