i am sure there is a germ pore and those are pleurocystidia.
the cheilo looks very similar…

Id say…

I’d say Tubaria. Are you sure about those being pleurocystidia? Did you see cheilocystidia? Also I’m not convinced of a germ pore, why do you say they clearly have a germ pore? You should update the obs. with the details from the scope.

The only other genera I can think of

are Agrocybe and Flammulaster but micro is not really matching.

sorry Byrain…

are pleurocsytidia? Bloodworm, can you please label your micro images? :)

Does Tubaria have pleurocystidia? What few references I have seen claim they do not, but they aren’t very in depth either.

I agree

that Tubaria may be wrong. The cystidia lokk weird too, but the mushrooms really look like Tubaria.. Can’t think of any possible Pholiota either – or anything else.

Tubaria species…
