Leptonia parva group

Common Name: Black Leptonia

Synonyms: 

Substrate: Ground

Location: Mixed Forests

Spore Color: Pink

Gill Color: Whitish, then pinkish with age

Comments: 

There is a large group of little black Leptonias. They are members of the Entolomataceae, with pink, angular spores. 

This group has a black cap, with white gills that eventually turn pink with age. The top part of the stem should be a smoky black. I will sort these out someday with better names.

Lookalikes: 

Entoloma serrulatum has "marginate" gills, where the edges are black.
