Observation 114541: Hebeloma (Fr.) P. Kumm.
When: 2012-10-13
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: This observation is for the Hebeloma. The Psathyrella has been separated out into observation 115137.

On sale in the central market. The lady picked these up on the mountains near Orizaba, probably at about 3300 meters elevation.

Spores 13 × 8, 14.5 × 7, 14 × 7.5, almond shaped in face view, mango shaped in side view, roughened, no germ pore.

Cheilocystidia long, clavate, occasionally slightly swollen at apex, approx 70 × 8 – 10.

While I was there someone bought a half kilo of mixed Hebeloma/Psathyrella for 12 pesos. I bought one large Hebeloma for a herbarium specimen, which is in the “Orizaba 2012” bag.

There are a few Hebeloma in there, but the main clusters look more like the big fir-dwelling Psathyrella we have referred to as P. spadicea (paler caps and very white stipes, vertically-striate less scurfy stipes, different gill color, growth in big caespitose clusters)

Amazing photos!
