Gymnopilus palmicola is a species of mushroom in the Cortinariaceae family.

Description[edit]

The cap is 2 to 5 centimetres (0.8 to 2.0 in) in diameter.[1]

This species does not stain blue and therefore probably does not contain hallucinogenic compounds.[2]

Habitat and distribution[edit]

Gymnopilus palmicola grows on the logs of palms, and on living orchids. It has been found in Cuba, Mexico, and Florida between the months of March to September.[1]
