Northbridge Mushrooms

A new crop of Dotted-stalk Suillus were up.  When they are this young and the pore area is thin, they are good eating.  I picked enough for a mushroom fry.  I would rate them as Good at this stage.  The stalks are unusually long because they were growing in a thick layer of pine needles.

This single mushroom reminded me of Oak-loving Collybia.  The cap was about 2.5".


Here is where the difference is.  It looks like it was attacked from the bottom of the stem by Collybia Jelly.  The stem had no meat in it.  All that was left was the outer skin of the stem.


The spore print was cream in color.  The larger spore measured 10.6 x 3.8 microns.
