Observation 111679: Hypholoma myosotis (Fr.) M. Lange
When: 2012-09-28
No herbarium specimen

Notes: At first I though this was a hypholoma. But the spore print was rusty reddish-brown. Found in a damp mossy area along a small creek. Hemlock, spruce, pine, birch, maple, and other hardwoods. Long thin stipe fragile but a bit fibrous. Glossy appearance on cap possibly due to rainfall.

The smaller marks on the ruler…

are meant to represent 2 mu. But one needs to increase by about 17%. I would estimate the spore dimensions as approximately 12-16 × 7-9 mu. This appears to be close to the 14-17 × 7-9 reported in Phillips.

I’m sorry

I can’t recall how to read the ruler in your microshots.. What is the size of the spores?
