Any chance of getting to genus level ?

Please try to include photos to show all parts of the fungus, eg top, stem, and gills.
Note any smells, and associated trees or plants (eg oak, birch). A spore print can be very useful.

Any chance of getting to genus level ?

Post by Wood Wanderer » Tue Nov 06, 2018 3:57 pm

Found these growing through moss in a damp plantation woodland under mainly young oak with some alder and spruce nearby.

Quite small caps at less than 1 cm across, striate from edge to depressed centre, gills well spaced and thickish, adnate tending to decurrent attached at a sort of ring ?

Spore print not very conclusive but seems to be light brown with a distinct pinkish tone

Can anyone suggest a genus as I can't seem to make any progress ;) ;)

Hello,

definitely an Entoloma, but I doubt that you will get any further than that with this one.

best regards,
Andreas

Many thanks Andreas for your help, nice to know what genus at least ... as you say no chance of reaching a positive ID although it "looks" a bit like E. caccabus visually and fits the habitat. I will just record it as Entoloma sp. for my purposes

Once again thank you for taking the time to offer an opinion, much appreciated.

Kind regards

John
