Gills another colourInocybe sp.

 

The fruit body is mushroom with both stem and cap. The mushrooms are generally small, with caps ranging from a one to several centimetres in diameter. The stems are up to a few centimetres long and a few millimetres wide. The caps are conical, shallowly convex or flat and with a central hump (or umbo), more pronounced in some species than others. The cap may be smooth or hairy and often you see a few radial splits in fresh caps (not as an artefact of drying in a shrivelling cap).

 

Their most common colour is brown, the shades ranging from pale brown to dark brown, the colour is often close to uniform throughout a given fruit body. By and large, the mushrooms in this genus are fairly drab, though there are species with whitish and violet colours. 

 

A cobwebby partial veil (or cortina) may cover the gills in young mushrooms, but traces of a cortina may be hard to find once the cap has opened out. 

 

Spore print: medium brown.

 

The mushrooms grow on soil in forests, woodlands and in suburban parks and gardens.
