Sclerotia Forming Mushroom (Need an ID)
    #2003290 - 10/12/03 08:59 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

I found these mushrooms growing in the same habitat as Ps. weilii, in pine straw. I thought they were weilii at first glance, but they have white gills and sclerotia. The gills when picked were stained purple color, but I couldn't really get a picture that shows it well enough (edit: second picture far right of right mushroom). No sporeprint yet. Any ideas?

Looks like a lentinus or lentinellus, does it have toothed or ragged gill edges. Weird staining.

My first thought is something near Collybia.

Perhaps Collybia dryophila, and the sclerotia could be Syzygospora mycetophila, a jelly fungus which parasitizes that species.

Is the sclerotia jelly like?

Happy mushrooming!

No the sclerotia is not jelly-like at all, extremely firm. However the mushrooms were more of a white color and the sclerotia more of a brown color. I found one clump of sclerotia growing independently and one clump forming inbetween the stems of a cluster. Hope that helps. The sporeprint didn't really turn out.
