    Cap: Conical to convex, smooth, dry, fleshy. Cream colored. The main becomes more transparent with older more upturned specimens, and the brown gills underneath give a slight illusion of blue bruising. Developes cracking in maturity.

    Stipe: Hollow, white, powdery.

    Habitat: growing from maple roots in western NJ. Found in rural neighborhood, in spring.

    *The gills are brown, getting darker as they age. I don't remember if they are attached or what not.

    *I did not obtain a spore print.

    It's a little far away, appears to be Coprinellus section micacei (Coprinellus micaceus or closely related sp.)
