Description

On a large rotted log, appeared to be birch but not certain – was hardwood.

Smell: distinct spicey smell. Species is supposed to have an Anise smell but I probably would not be able to tell.

Largest cap – 10 cm. Shape conical with broad umbro at maturity. Small umbo seen on buttons. Cap surface on mature cap is satiny smooth with flat darker fiber at the edges and darker fibrels over the umbo.

Stalk: growing directly out of wood, central, base about twice the thickness at the cap. see photo.

Gills: crowded, white on fresh mature specimen, salmon pink stained by spore on past maturity cap. Short gills of varying length.

Spore Print – salmon pink

Description

No ring, no volva, off-white spores, and a long, but sturdy, striate stipe. Growing beside a log on the uphill side--important placement, I think, given how dry the weather has been.

Description from Wikipedia

The Pluteaceae are a family of small to medium-sized mushrooms which have free gill attachment and pink spores. Members of Pluteaceae can be mistaken for members of Entolomataceae, but can be distinguished by their angled spores and attached gills. The four genera in the Pluteaceae include the widely distributed Volvariella and Pluteus, the rare Chamaeota, and Volvopluteus, newly described in 2011 as a result of molecular analysis. The Dictionary of the Fungi (10th edition, 2008) estimates...
