Observation 276865: Pluteus hispidulus group
When: 2017-04-30
0 Sequences

Note from Dick Bishop:
I couldn’t tell for sure if the base was attached to the wood under the moss but it was right next to the wood so it probably was. The gills appeared to be slightly attached but couldn’t tell for sure without tearing it apart. Spores were nearly round, 5.5-7 × 5-6, so I’m thinking probably Pluteus.—Dick

Collected at the 6th annual Kelley Point Mycoblitz on April 30th, 2017.

The habitat is low elevation, bordered by the Columbia and Willamette rivers. The area is dominated by black cottonwood/Populus trichocarpa.

Identifiers present were Leah Bendlin, Dick Bishop, Sallie Tucker Jones and Josh Grefe.

We had this mushroom sequenced and compared the sequence to similar sequences in Gen Bank. The closest match was 90% similar (Pluteus nanus and P. podospileus) and the closes P.hispidulus was a var. cepholocystis at 89%.

very likely this is one of the species around Pluteus hispidulus
