Observation 119361: Trogia cantharelloides (Mont.) Pat.
When: 2012-12-06
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: Numerous closely packed fluted and wavy edged basidiomata growing from soil in Bosque Estatal de Piñones (along Route 87 between San Juan and Loíza) in woods dominated by the She-Oak Casuarina equisetifolia. This tree is native to Australia but is naturalized in Puerto Rico. These mushrooms have beautifully colored lavender/purple gills. A very faint spore print on a glass slide looks white (but it’s hard to judge color confidently). The spores are smooth and globose with a protruding apiculus. Average size of spores was 6.2 × 5.8 microns with a Qm = 1.07. See photomicrograph.
