Observation 108539: Inocybe (Fr.) Fr.
When: 2012-08-17
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: Inocybe sp. growing from the ground in a scattered group in mixed deciduous woods with no obvious tree association determined. Spores are smooth and ellipsoid, with most pointier at one end resulting in a teardrop shape. Most spores have one large oil droplet inside. 20 spore average of 7.4 × 5.3 microns, Qm = 1.41. Bulbous encrusted metuloid pleurocystidia present. Encrustations are confirmed crystalline as demonstrated by glowing in polarized light due to anisotropy. This is a nice trick to show if inclusions in or on cells are crystalline.
