Observation 135857: Deconica (W.G. Sm.) P. Karst.
When: 2013-06-08
Who: Hashfinger

Notes: This species is found along trailsides and washout areas in mixed hardwood forests. Primarily found on woodchipped trails, the species can also be found on various woody debris washed into one location after heavy storms. There is frequently what appears to be blue bruising, but it is just a rubbing away of fibrils to reveal a dark blackish-blue stem. Spore print is brown-grey to purple-brown.

Microscopy by lightworkerpeace:
No blue stains observed macroscopically, including under a stereoscope.

Pleurocystidia may or may not be absent. Fresh material should be examined to compare to dried material, and to examine the pileipellis.

If pleurocystidia cells are absent, this collection had abundant basidioles throughout much of the gill face. If pleurocystidia are present, they are so closely shaped to basidioles in dried collections that no difference could be noticed.

Spores measured manually (no software):

Length x Width in microns
7×5
6.5×5
7×4.75
7×4.25
6.25×4
6.5×5.25
6.25×5
6.75×5

My chantrelle patches all had very promising clusters of pins. Only a waiting game now! I want to make a chantrelle pizza, and maybe some chantrelle-morel lazagna!

I found these today too

Fruiting in massive numbers on woodchip trails, I’ll post some pics tomorrow. And thanks for the local chanterelle heads up on shroomery, I had success at 2 out of the 3 spots I checked today, they should be booming by midweek
