I have tried to go thru those Galerina keys, and they are a bitch and half. Hats off to Doug. You gotta have a lot of patience.

What sez Doug about macro ID on Galerina sp., anyways?

MIcro was done,

I will add it when I get that spreadsheet… In the field it can be recognized by the pale colors (esp. the stipe). large size (for a western moss dwelling Galerina), and the club-shaped stipe, which is not easily seen in this picture. Micro is really distinctive, I believe Douglas has pictures of the capitate cheilocystidia on MO.

How was this id made? Was micro done or are you familiar enough with G. clavata to make the id macroscopically? If so, what features are you relying on? :)

nice voucher photo.
