Gymnopus DB11977                                  *Collection: California, Marine Watershed

I collected this Collybioid species in the Fall of 2008 in several patches in an area that I had checked many times before, but never seen anything like it. After consulting all of the top pros in Gymnopus and related Genera, it appears that this species is undescribed. There is a light bluish cast in the upper portion of the stipe.

Pileipellis: parallel to intertwined, mostly clamped, 5-8 avg. smooth, often branched. Pretty ordinary for the Genus.
