Camarophyllopsis hymenocephala in Howard Co., Maryland (6/25/2013). Richard Orr's notes on this observation: "This handsome mushroom resisted my attempts at identification. I would have let it pass if it were not such a distinctive looking mushroom with extra wide gill spacing and wavy caps. This mushroom was growing in soil that was laden with rotting wood along a wooded stream bank. The gills were not free being attached or slightly notched. Spore print white. The small spores were elliptical with smooth transparent thin cell walls. I owe Lance [Biechele] for making the identification." Photo by Richard Orr. (MBP list)
