Observation 129085: Pluteus chrysophlebius (Berk. & M.A. Curtis) Sacc.
When: 2012-09-01
( 2200m)
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Growing on oak.

Pleurocystidia ellipsoid. Cheilocystidia ellipsoid, pyriform and clavate. Spores globose to subglobose, 5 – 6 µm.

Pileipellis an irregular epithelium / cystoderm.

If this collection has lageniform pleurocystidia it is P. chrysophlebius, and if I am correct that the pleurocystidia is ellipsoid, this is an undescribed species.

Free gills

The gills are free, the pics here are taken at a slight angle so you can’t quite see that. The microscopic features also strongly suggest Pluteus.

It seems to have attached gills. They are not free, so what led you to Pluteus?
Did you test the cap with KOH?
