the Fungi for ID Forum rules,
in the interests of user safety we have applied the following rules to this form,

Please do not post any ID requests for the edibility or for "recreational" usage, in this (or any other) board,
identification of any fungi should not be relied on from this forum (or any other for that matter) to be totally accurate, as it is very easy to mistake any fungi for another one, especially from just a photograph alone, which could prove fatal to yourself if you were to eat the said fungi,
any posts we think may contain such requests will be removed,

Collybia species ?

#1

Post by mary » October 7th, 2019, 10:31 am

a few of these scattered about, with a pine tree and birch nearby,
50mm wide across the cap, white gills that are not attached to the stem in any way,
and just the usual faint fungus smell to it,
I was thinking it was Collybia species (I know, they are named something else now, but I just cant remember to what :oops: )
but my books precede the name changes I am afraid,

would go with Collybia too Mary,
i'm torn between it being something like Collybia acervata or Collybia dryophila,
one thing that is different with yours is they seem to be growing in single rather than tufted groups,
the gill attachment description seems to vary depending on which book you read to, some of mine have them being free, while others say attached to the stem ?

acervata is now Connopus acervatus, while dryophila is now Gymnopus dryophila if I remember correctly ?

I would say that you both have the same thing there, i'd plump for acervata rather than Dryophila myself,

thanks for that :) as if the fungus themselves were not confusing enough, all those name changes must make it hard to know just what is what anymore, I would imagine anyhow :roll:
