Brown, cone cap in pine

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.

Brown, cone cap in pine

Post by Batfish » Sun Oct 08, 2017 5:25 pm

Hi, given the distinct conical shape and various stages of maturity, was confident of an ID. Alas none of my guide books were much help. Found in pine wood. Cap is dry and fibrous. Larger cap is 7cm in diameter. Very crowded gills are white. Alas, there is no spores yet dropping off my cap. The white stipe is hollow and fibrous along length, such that it looks striped and when dry splinters lengthwise. Any help greatly appreciated.

Possibly Rhodocollybia prolixa var distorta

Gills should be serrate with spots.
