It has a dark brown to olive brown cap.
Cap is funnel shaped with inrolled edge.
there are dark radial lines (not striations) on the margin of the cap (fresh specimens)
The stipe is long and fleshy and the same color as the cap
The gills are whitish, decurrent and close to subdistant.
Click here for description in Mushrooms of the Pacific Northwest

Principle characteristics of the genus Clitocybe:
Spore print white to cream to pinkish
Lamellae broadly adnate to distinctly decurrent
Spores smooth to slightly roughened, inamyloid

Clitocybee is a diverse group of white to yellowish spored mushrooms. They have adnate to decurrent gills and funnel shaped fruitbodies.
They have a slender to fleshy stipe, no veils and are sprotrophick on soil, litter of decaying wood.

3) Armillaria solidipes (formerly Armillaria ostoyae)

Armillaria solidipes is a species of fungus in the Physalacriaceae family.
It is the most common variant in the western U.S., of the group of species that all used to share the name Armillaria mellea.

Armillaria ostoyae can be separated from other species of Armillaria on the basis of its brown colors, the fairly prominent scales featured on its cap, and the well developed ring on its stem. It is usually found on conifers, and it is a ravaging parasite feared by forest managers across the continent
From - click here for more pictures

Armillaria solidipes is quite common on both hardwood and conifer wood in forests west of the Cascade crest.

The mycelium attacks the sapwood and is able to travel great distances under the bark or between trees in the form of black rhizomorphs ("shoestrings").

In most areas of North America, Armillaria solidipes can be separated from other species by its physical features. Its brown colors, fairly prominent scales featured on its cap, and the well-developed ring on its stem sets it apart from any Armillaria.

It is known to be one of the largest living organisms, where scientists have estimated a single specimen found in Malheur National Forest in Oregon to have been growing for some 2,400 years, covering 3.4 square miles (8.4 km²) and colloquially named the "Humongous Fungus."

Armillaria solidipes grows and spreads primarily underground and the bulk of the organism lies in the ground, out of sight.

4) Clitocybe dilatata

The cap is convex becoming flat with a swollen umbo.
There is an incurved margin becoming irregular, upturned, and wavy; often misshaped from overlapping.

The color is gray then whitish or chalky; dry, smooth, downy.

Gills adnate to decurrent, close, narrow then broad; whitish to buff.
The Stem is solid becoming hollow, often curved, enlarged toward the base, which is often united with many others to form a large clump.

It is white, bruising darker at base; finely felty and furrowed, sometimes minutely scaly toward the base.

The flesh is firm, thicker on the disc; watery gray to whitish.

Odor none. Taste unpleasant.

The spores deposit white.

Habitat in groups or dense clusters, often overlapping, along roads or in sandy soil or gravel. From Click here for more pictures

5) Clitopilus prunulus
Also called Sweetbread Mushroom and The Miller

"The smell, labeled "farinaceous" in Mycologese, is sometimes compared to the smell of an old grain mill (have you been in one lately?), or of watermelon rind. Aside from the odor, identifying features for the species include: A brownish pink spore print; A whitish to grayish cap that often features a wavy margin; Gills that run down the stem and are pinkish at maturity; Spores that are pointed-ellipsoid and ridged lengthwise. "
From - click here for more pictures and info

The cap is initially convex when young, but in maturity flattens out, usually with a shallow central depression. It is white or light gray or yellow, sticky when moist, and 1.2 to 3.9 in in diameter with a characteristic feel to the touch of chamois skin. The gills are decurrent in attachment to the stipe, spaced together rather closely, and whitish, although they often develop a pinkish hue in age. The stipe is 3 to 8 cm (1.2 to 3.1 in) long x 4–15 mm thick, and white. This mushroom has a mealy odor, somewhat like cucumber.
The spore print is pink.

6) Coltricia Perennis

Coltricia Perennis is a little vase-shaped polypore that is recognized by its silky, cinnamon cap. When fresh, the cap surface has a sheen and is delicately zoned with concentric bands of cinnamon brown. The flesh is tough and leathery, and when sliced open the flesh is is rusty brown or even orange color .

Coltricia perennis has a funnel-form cap that has well-defined bands of colors, that range from cinnamon-brown, yellow-brown to grey.

Important identifying features are a tomentose cap surface and a usually decurrent tube layer.
Note "tomentose" means covered with short, dense, matted hairs, that is, a woolly coating formed by hairs that are flattened and matted.

Coltricia cinnamomea is a closely related species that has a faintly-zoned, reddish-brown fruiting body.
The cap suface of Coltricia cinnamomea is covered with appressed fibrils rather than a tomentum. These fibrils sometimes give the species a shiny or glistening appearance.

Coltricia perennis, has a distinctly-zoned cap, and a matted-tomentose surface. Compared to Coltricia cinnamomea, the cap colors of Coltricia perennis are more muted--cinnamon-brown, tan, ochre to greyish.
Additionally the tube layer of Coltricia perennis tends to be more decurrent than in C. cinnamomea.

Coltricia perennis is frequently found in moss along trails.

Coltricia perennis, Coltricia cinnamomea and the handful of other species in Coltricia are the only polypores with central stems

Coltricia cinnamomea is easy to dry; just set it on the table for a few days and it will harden, retaining much of its original beauty." From Click here for more pictures and infl

7) Phlegmacium
Phlegmacium is a subgenus of Cortinarius

Like all Cortinarius species Phlegmacium have brownish ornamented spores and posesses a web-like cortina. The combination of a sticky/viscid cap and a dry stipe is however unique to Phlegmacium.
From click her for more info

"Cortinarius is the largest genus of mushrooms in the world, containing an astounding number of species (often estimated well over a thousand). How to identify a Cortinarius:
First, they have cortinas covering their gills when young (hence the name of the genus); sometimes the tiny fibers of the cortina are ephemeral and disappear, but they frequently collapse against the stem to create a ring zone.
Secondly, the spore print is rusty brown and, as a result of the rusty brown spores, the mature gills of Cortinarius mushrooms are usually also rusty brown. Finally, they are terrestrial and mycorrhizal, so you will only find them in association with trees." From Mushroom Click Here for more info

8) Cortinarius traganus

Recognized by dry violet cap and pale yellowish brown young gills,
Cap broad, hemispherical to convex, expanding to plano-convex, sometimes with a broad low umbo, margin inrolled to decurved;
surface dry, subglabrous to silky-fibrillose or with a fibrillose-scaly
a club shaped violet stipe covered with violet veil fibrils.
has a fragrant fruity odor
From California Mushrooms -- click here for more info and pictures

9) Pluteus cervinus
Also known as Pluteus atricapillus and
The Deer Mushroom

It is fairly easily recognized by its growth on wood, its free gills that begin whitish but soon become pink, its brownish cap, and its medium size. It appears from spring to fall and even in winter

The name comes because the cystidia (special cells on the gills) are "horned," with two or more projections at the tip.
From - Click Here for more pictures and information

The cap is initially it is bell-shaped, and often wrinkled when young. Later it expands to a convex shape.
The cap can be deer-brown, but vary from light ochre-brown to dark brown, with a variable admixture of grey or black. The centre of the cap may be darker.
The cap surface is smooth and matte to silky-reflective.

The gills are initially white, but soon show a distinctive pinkish sheen, caused by the ripening spores.
The stipe is usually thicker at the base. It is covered with brown vertical fibrils on a white ground.
The mushroom has a mild to earthy radish smell and a mild taste at first, which may become slightly bitter.
The spore print is salmon-pink to reddish-brown. From Wikipedia - Click Here for more information

10) Phaeolus schweinitzii
Also called: Dyer's Polypore or Velvet-top fungus or the cow patty fungus

Phaeolus schweinitzii is not edible but can be used for making dyes.

This mushroom is a classic "butt rot" fungus, attacking trees through their roots and producing decay in the root system and the heartwood of the lower portion of the tree (up to about 10 or 20 feet above ground). The result is a weakened, or even hollow, tree base-- which makes the tree more susceptible to windthrow,
From -- click Here for more information The fruiting body may appear terrestrial when growing from the roots or base of the host tree. The fruiting bodies, appearing in late summer or fall, commonly incorporate blades of grass, twigs, or fallen pine needles as they grow. As these fruiting bodies age, the pore surface turns from yellow to greenish yellow, the top becomes darker, and the flesh becomes harder and more wood-like.

11) Gomphus floccosus
Also called: shaggy-, scaly-, or woolly chanterelle or woolly gomphus

The distinction between Gomphus and the chanterelles is that Gomphus have large, coarse scales on the cap surface-- or have stems that are fused together, sharing two or more caps.

12) Gymnopus acervatus
Previously Collybia acervata

Defining features include the densely clustered growth on the wood of conifers; the convex (not conical) reddish brown caps that fade to pinkish buff; and the reddish to reddish brown stem that is bald except for the slightly fuzzy base. Older specimens demonstrate a marked contrast between the pale caps and the reddish stems.

Gills: Attached to the stem broadly or narrowly; close or crowded; whitish when young, developing pink tones.

Spore Print: White
From Mushroom -- click here for more information

Connopus acervatus is recognized by the dense clusters of small reddish-brown mushrooms that it produces on rotting conifer stumps and logs. In age the color fades, but it can still be recognized by the somewhat slippery, convex cap, persistently incurved margin, and two-toned stipe, pale at the apex, dull reddish-brown at the base. From -- click Here for more information

13) Gymnopus peronatus Also called: Wood Woollyfoot

The lower half of the stem being covered in fine white hairs. This widespread and common mushroom of leaf litter is poisonous;

Its cap color is also very variable, which can make confident identification more difficult. Commonly known as the Wood Woollyfoot, this attractive little mushroom is sometimes recorded under the synonymous scientific names Marasmius peronatus or Marasmius urens.
From -- click Here for more information

Cap convex then flattened, often with a low, broad umbo, tan to darker brown, becoming wrinkled and leathery with age. Stem yellowish covered in long dense white or yellowish woolly hairs at the base and lower stem.

Flesh whitish tinged yellowish. Taste acrid.

Gills adnexed to free, crowded, cream to yellowish brown or tan.

Spore print white.

The gills are adnate to subdecurrent

The stipe is dry and white

It is said to be edible
From book California Mushrooms -- Click Here for pictures and more info

16) Hypholoma fasciculare
Also called sulfur tuft or clustered woodlover

The "Sulphur Tuft" is bitter and poisonous; consuming it can cause vomiting, diarrhea and convulsions.

The cap is smooth and sulphur yellow with an orange-brown centre and whitish margin. The crowded gills are initially yellow but darken to a distinctive green colour as the blackish spores develop on the yellow flesh. It has a purple brown spore print.[3] The stipe is up to 10 cm (4 in) tall and 1 cm (? in) wide, light yellow, orange-brown below, often with an indistinct ring zone coloured dark by the spores.

It grows prolifically in large clumps on stumps, dead roots or rotting trunks of broadleaved trees.
From Wikipedia - click here for picture and information

When fresh, the clustered caps are usually described as being bright yellow to greenish yellow--as are the gills and stems--but the cap colors are extremely variable and, in my collecting experience, the photogenic yellow specimens one sees in field guides are actually less commonly encountered than specimens demonstrating a slew of other cap colors: reddish brown, orangish brown, orange, brownish, and even whitish when specimens are very mature. The spore print is purple-brown, and with older specimens you can frequently check this out in the field, due to the clustered growth pattern, by simply lifting a few caps that have covered others.

Gills: Attached to the stem or pulling away from it; close or crowded; yellow, becoming olive or greenish yellow, and eventually dusted with spores and therefore spotted purplish brown to blackish; short-gills frequent. From Click Here for picture and ingo

17) Lactarius rubrilacteus
Also known as Red milky cap or
the bleeding milkcap
Note Lactarius deliciosus is also called bleeding milkcap

Can be either a bluish green or an orangy brown hue, with creamy white or yellow spores that are ellipsoid in shape.
The cap of the mushroom is convex and sometimes shield-shaped The cap has quite an underfolded margin and a depressive disk.

Lactarius rubrilacteus has many laticifers which appear as a white network across the surface of the mushroom. When sliced or cut, the mushroom flesh will typically release a dark red to purple latex or milky substance.

The flesh itself will lose colour when damaged, and is usually granular or brittle to the touch.

The stem is quite thin, being only several centimetres in any dimension, and is of an average size and shape for a mushroom.

The fungus itself exudes a slight odour that is faintly aromatic.

While it is not known if the mushroom would be edible, small taste tests reveal that the mushroom is mild to slightly bitter.

18) Lactarius Rufus
Also known as "Rufous Milkcap"
or "Red Hot Milk Cap"

The Lacctarius Rufus is dark brick red in color,
edible, and grows with `spruce,pine or birch trees.

The cap is dry, non-zoned that sometimes wrinkles with age.
The color reddish brown to brick colored or orange-brown.
The gills are pale orange.
The stipe is pinkish brown and often has lower and upper area that are pale.

The spore print is creamy white, with a slight salmon tinge.

The flesh is white, as is the milk, which tastes mild initially, gradually becoming very hot, and acrid after a minute or so.
This milkcap one of the hottest tasting of all mushrooms

19) Lactarius Torminosus
Also called "Woolly milkcap" or "Bearded milkcap"

The caps of Lactarius torminosus are convex with a central depression,
Their color is blend of pink and ochre hues,
the cap sometimes has concentric zones of alternating lighter and darker shades.

The edge of the cap is rolled inward, and shaggy when young. That is, it is tomentose (covered with a thick matting of hairs), forming a veil-like structure that partly covers up the gills.
The cap surface is at first similarly tomentose, but eventually the hairs wear off, leaving the surface more or less smooth.

Note: the Latin word torminosus means ‘cause of colic’.

The gills are subdecurrent (running only a small way down the length of the stem).
The gills are close to crowded together, narrow, and sometimes forked near the stem.
Their color is whitish, becoming pink-tinged, turning pale tan with age.
The cylindrical stem is a pale flesh color with a delicately downy surface and brittle flesh;
The interior of the stem is firm, beige white, and filled with a soft pith, but it eventually becomes hollow.

Occasionally, white mycelium is visible at the base of the stem where it meets the ground.
When cut or injured, the fruit bodies ooze a bitter white latex that does not change color upon exposure to air.

The spore print of Lactarius. torminosus is cream to pale yellow

The stipe is either roughly the same width throughout its length, or slightly thicker near the base.
The colour of the stem is similar to the cap, or lighter,

There is yellow mycelium at the base of the stipe. The flesh is yellow, sometimes with reddish tones, maturing to purplish brown.
It has no odor and it taste peppery.

The spore print is brown to cinnamon Chalciporus piperatus is thought to be parasitic on Amanita muscaria.
The flesh of Chalciporus piperatus has a very peppery taste, and can be used as a condiment or flavoring.
