Entoloma?

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.

Entoloma?

Post by Ernesto »

I found this yesterday, it had been kicked over and so, I'm afraid, it is not as complete a specimen as I would have liked (apologies). Found in grass under horse chestnut in open parkland. The cap is 15 cm in diameter and has a marked broad umbo. The adnate gills seem pinkish to flesh-coloured (to me). I would appreciate thoughts on whether it is an Entoloma and possibly E. sinuatum? Many thanks.

I can see that this is not an easy one. I have a spore print now which seems to be white (rather than pink) and so would rule out Entoloma? Any suggestion would be gratefully received!

Something in the Clitocybe / Lepista area? What was the base like?

Thanks Adam - I found it on the soil surface (where it had been kicked I guess). I bagged the cap and brought it home and so the only evidence of the stipe was the remanant seen in the image that I posted. Thanks for the pointers!
