Veiled Poisonpie

Hebeloma mesophaeum

Description:

(my ID is very uncertain) Hebeloma mesophaeum is a small, bitter species of Poisonpie. It's a highly variable mushroom in a genus of very similar looking and hence difficult to identify mushrooms. H. mesophaeum is described as having persistant veil remnants (maybe present in this spotting) and a stem covered in longitudinal fibrils (my spotting shows some fibrils). The gills are free or adnate (5th photo shows 'free' gills), the mushroom is commonly found under coniferous and birch trees. My spotting; about 25mm across growing among moss under birch saplings growing on or through a concrete roof. There were 3 or 4 fruitbodies growing, all about the same size. Hebeloma sp.? such as veiled poisonpie Hebeloma mesophaeum http://www.first-nature.com/fungi/hebelo... The last photo shows the same fruitbody after a bit of dehydration
