    No. I know exactly what this mushroom is. But do you?

    This is a contest! Be the first person to correctly identify this mushroom and you win a spore print* from the upcoming Fry' Mammoth batch!**

    So lets get started!

    Where: Vancouver, BC, Canada
    Growing scattered in some moss next to a Fir Tree

    Cap: Brown. Kind of shaggy or hairy. Coming to a point.

    Gills: Dirty Brown. Not attached to the stem.

    Stem: Tough. solid. a bit fiberous when snapped. Tan/ Brown

    Spore Print: Brown

    Pictures!

    So have at er! I'll let ya guys know when I see the correct answer!

    * Spore print is for microscopy purposes only!

    **This prize is assuming that I get a flush. Contams, etc, that would cause me to not obtain a spore print result in this contest being null and void.
