Location: Colorado
Smell: Mealy
Spore Print: Rusty brown
Edibility: Poisonous
Color: Brown

Grows on the rotting wood of dead conifers. They tend to grow close to each other in small groups. They are fairly small around the size of small coins.

This is one of the most poisonous mushrooms in known in Colorado. They always grow from wood. They sometimes have a ring on the stem.

This is a good reason why it is best to avoid any LBMs (Little Brown Mushrooms). There are so many and they can become very difficult to identify to species.
