looks like more was collected from a similar habitat at SOMA camp:


Shall I assume that no work-up was done nor the fruit body saved with that collection?

OK Alan…

you had me goin’ there for a minute, and in fact this fruit body, although of medium size, does share some of the characters of Pseudobaeospora, in both macro and micro, but…it failed the KOH test. No reaction anywhere on its tissues.

There is a very nice description of the genus right here on MO:

but it produced tons of hyaline, broadly elliptical white spores.

certainly not an Entoloma.

are pretty close to Entolomataceae

I would like to know

how close the sequence of this compares with entoloma. From the comfort of home, the photos clearly show white spores, but the stipe really does look like an entoloma.

Lyophyllum was Christian’s suggestion…

and a reasonable one. white spore drop eliminated Entoloma.

will look closer tomorrow.
