Observation 132203: Pluteus Fr.

When: 2013-04-06

Collection location: Boulder Creek, California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Douglas Smith (douglas)

Specimen available

Found on the ground, under tan oak, live oak, redwood, D. fir.

Only one small one found of this, but a slightly strange Pluteus. I didn’t notice until much later, that the gills are lightly marginate, with grey edges. You can see that in the posed photo on white paper.

I got this one under the scope, the cap is a cutis of long inflated pigmented cells, no clamps obs. Cheilocystidia thin walled, clavate, lightly pigmented grey. Pleurocystidia similar. Spores sub-globose, smooth no germ pore.

They keys put this in Pluteus as P. umbrosus, but I don’t think that is right.
