Found in Nora’s Wood as part of my study to generate a funga report of the park starting in October 2020.

Unsure what this species is, there were dark droplets on the smaller mushrooms that stained my fingers a tobacco color, gills were very slug eaten but the small section has given a white to cream spore color. Found below a California incense cedar.

I found this peculiar looking mushroom while walking around my yard. It had ring-like ridges and was funnel-shaped at the top. It had blue towards the edges and gradually faded to green towards the center. In its center it had a small pool of water. It’s too was only about 4 inches in diameter. It was the only one of its kind in my yard and all the other fungi in my yard looked nothing like it. I’ve never seen a mushroom like this before and I was wondering if anyone would be able to identify it?

They presented as small dark gray pins, but turned out to be brown under magnification. About 10-15mm tall with heads/caps 1-2mm. Wiry and flexible, bouncing back quickly after bending and releasing.

I was shocked to see around a dozen of these diminutive mushrooms coming up through the oak duff in late June. Their spores are bright yellow and although there was some bruising to the gills, the stipes did not change color even an hour after being cut in half. The stipes are striate and yellow along their length. I tried keying them out using "California Mushrooms: The comprehensive identification guide" but I kept coming up with some kind of Xerocomellus, but the lack of red on the stipe seems to eliminate that genus.
