Observation 117578: Pluteus Fr.

When: 2012-11-21

Collection location: Bon Tempe Reservoir, Marin Co., California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Ron Pastorino (Ronpast)

Specimen available

These were growing on a large mossy old oak log.
Caps were up to 4.8 cm across.
Cap was moist but not viscid and rather fragile with striations up to ~ 3.5mm.
Base of stems had a small bulb.
Spores were ~ 7.1-8.1 X 5.4-6.3 microns(broadly ellipsiod).
There was a moderate amount of Cheilocystidia that was from ~ 86-94 X 21-25 microns and ranged from narrowly utriform to utriform and some long almost cylindrical cystidia that was up to 100 microns.
Didn’t find any cystidia that I could confidently call pleurocystidia but I guess some of what is pictured could be pleurocystidia that broke free.
