This one is new to me. I think it may be an Entoloma.






These were found clustered at the base of a live elm in Ohio.

Spore print: brownish pink.

Cap: brownish gray, smooth, dry, wavy inrolled margin.

Stripe: about 1cm thick, solid, firm, covered in white mycelium almost to top.

Gills: pinkish brown, crowded, decurrent.

Smell: like rooten wood.

Taste: mild, reminds me of dried corn.

I also found these.


(Pleurotus, ???) Log full of oysters.


(Coprinus picaceus) Magpie Inky Caps.

No more Big Laughing Gyms, but I'll keep looking.


:smile:

I hate to see no one replying, but I don't have time to make an investigation of your suspected Entoloma specimens. I've never seen anything like them either. I suppose they are a Pleurotaceae.

Good luck!

Those are definitely oysters (I've eaten them), I'm just not sure the exact species. My field guides say they should be cream to dark brown, but the ones I find are usually white. They are very common here, though logs full of small pristine specimens are quite rare.

I really don't expact an ID on the suspected entolomas, I just have not seen anything like these in six years of mushroom hunting. I thought they looked cool so I'd posted the pics. If I had to guess I would say Entoloma abortivum. Not sure enough to eat them.

Thanks for the comments.

Entoloma is certainly a possibility. Unfortunately, decent keys for that genus are hard to come by. Most Entolomas are tough to identify.

Happy mushrooming!
