A new record for Texas

In 2016, we received photos and vouchers from GSMS members of Entoloma incanum (Leptonia incana) from central Texas.  We determined that it was a new Texas record and that it had not been found anywhere along the Gulf coast. 

Recently, we obtained more collections from the same site. The caps are greenish yellow in color with a vivid green stipe which bruises blue; it is said they have the odor of mice. In central Texas, it fruits on the side of creek banks in limestone soils. Its common name is mousepee pinkgill and it is said to be inedible/ toxic. See digital reference here.

In 2016, GSMS members Jolyn Piercy and David Werth sent photos and vouchers of Entoloma incanum (Leptonia incana) from central Texas.  It was quickly determined that it was a new Texas record and that it has not been found anywhere along the Gulf coast. This month, March, we visited Jolyn and David, and found and collected many more specimens.  The caps are a greenish yellow color with a vivid green stipe which bruises blue, and it is said to have the odor of mice.   In central Texas, it fruits on the side of creek banks in limestone soils. Its common name is mousepee pinkgill and it is said to be inedible/ toxic.
