Rhodocollybia maculata

Growing on wood
Cap cleanly breaks from stem

Spore print is white
(or maybe possibly a little salmon)

A prominent feature is the striations (ridges) on the stipe




I thought this might be:
Pluteus tomentosulus

Dick B. said: The spore print doesn't seem dark enough for a Pluteus. This mushroom reminds me of Rhodocollybia maculata which grows from rotten wood and occurs in the spring. The clean removal of the stipe is interesting. I've seen other examples in the old Collybia group where you could twist out the stipe with minimal disturbance of the gills. Never tried it with a R. maculata though.-

.. would rule out Pluteus due to the white spores. I've seen the pink on Pluteus species spores vary from bright hot pink to dull brownish pink, but never so light that they might be considered whitish.

There was buried wood
The stipe was attached to a piece of wood
