Collection location: Point Reyes National Seashore, Marin Co., California, USA [Click for map]
Caps up to 5.8 cm across.
base of stipe submarginate.
Spores ~ 8.0-9.0(10.0) X 6.0-7.3 microns and nodulose.
Moderate amount of Cheilocystidia in the range of 65 X 17 microns and much of it with encrusted apicies. Pleurocystidia also present, similar in size but usually without the bad hair.
Did not detect any strong odor.
They were growing in a fog drip area(otherwise dry) on a ridge probably under Doug Fir or some other conifers.
I’m tentatively going with a weak I. napipes ID because that is where Matheny’s Key took me. The spores and cystidia generally are also similar. The key doesn’t mention odor, but other references indicate this species should have a rather strong unpleasant odor.
