So, after writing a very extensive post, IE crashed on me, and what I copies was lost in the debug/memory flush. So, here is my SHORT description, with only a few pics, cause i just lost my patience.
2 spots with shroomies I found today
1st spot on the side of the road in a state park, on the grass. Convex cap, fibrous and they are concentrated more on the center, yellow/orange dark from the center light to the outer. Brown / dark nipple in the middle, light but crowded ripples on the edges
stem is solid with a light white top, going rusty brown to the bottom, with a hint of green near the root... slight flare on it
stems are from 1.5 to 4.25 inches, caps about the same suprisingly
gills are crowded, offwhite / light orange, attached (could be descending, but lightly)
found on dead wood in the woods!
convex cap fading from a dark orange in center, to an light orange on the edges of the convex. peeling around the edges is noticeable, under peel is offwhite, and descends further onto the cap as it matures, from 1/8(young) to 1/2(mature) an inch from the edge
crowded free gills, dirty white with a hint of light green/yellow
stem is hollow, light at top quickly rusting orange/brown near the bottom, with hints of more rust on mature specimens. no visible ring.
stem leng is 2 inches to 4.5 inches
cap is 1.5 inches to 5.25 inches
