I'm pretty certain these are jacks but wanted a second opinion. Spore print was very light with a light-bright yellow tint. Its hard to see but they are growing from an moss covered log.

I think you might be right mike. Two things that kept me from being certain they were jacks - the size of the mature mushrooms and the dark stems. I'm going back to the books... thanks for the input!

Check Enoki... Flammulina velutipes. I've heard the stems get dark and velvety.

That did cross my mind George but far to warm for them, at least if I understand them correctly.

Mike - you're 100% right on them NOT being jacks. I've got to do some more digging to figure out exactly what they are. Not fleshy enough to be jacks, though.
