The Enclosed Area


Day 1 – 15 September 2022

All attached to rotting wood in a dark, enclosed area.

The cap of the Pluteus were 30-40mm and had a brownish apex, with a green-yellow cap and whiterim.

The gills were white and semi-close. The stems, 40–50mm long and quite thick for a small species, were fibrous and had a slight bulge at the base.

They were all attached to rotten wood.

Later, the cap is flat with gills bulging under, and when very small they are oval shaped and a brighter yellow.
