Rhodotus palmatus
    Considered rare throughout much of the United States, this mushroom is infrequent, but certainly not rare in Kansas.  At least a few specimens are collected on forays every summer.
    Easily identified by the distinctive network on the cap in a mature stage, fruiting bodies that are fresh, in moist conditions, may be perfectly smooth, making identification much more difficult.  The mushroom usually fruits singly or in small groups on wood.  A cluster such as this is unusual.
