Here is the spore print:
Matchmaker is a very interesting and complex program. I can't believe all the variables. The algorithms must be "gnarly dude."
It is a nice looking fungus, with a pleasant fungusy smell.
When I use the little option in Matchmaker for reducing the percentage match it gives me other choices.
- Lepista inversa* 63%
- Paxillus involutus* 61%
- Gymnopus confluens* 61%
- Cortinarius semisanguineus* 61%
- Clitocybe albirhiza* 61%
Cortinarius semisanguineus looks more like my specimen in some ways but mine is probably not as brown and with a thinner stipe, and definitely not red to brown spores.
So, based on the information I was able to enter, this is probably Gymnopus dryophilus. It sure smells nice, but it will take a few more years of learning about identification before I will even consider eating one!
