When: 2013-04-06

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

Who: Douglas Smith (douglas)

No specimen available

Found in redwood duff.

Cap a cutis, thin inflated calls, no clamps obs. Cheilocystidia inflated, rounded, thin walled. No pleurocystidia obs. Spores smooth ellisoid, no germ pore, non-angular.

I first found these, and didn’t know what to think. Thought they were some form of Entoloma, some small thin Entoloma of some kind. But looking at them under the scope, they turn out to be Pluteus. These don’t key out to any species that I can find…
