Observation 137203: Lepiota clypeolaria (Bull.) P. Kumm.

When: 2013-06-12

Collection location: Big Thicket, Polk Co., Texas, USA [Click for map]

Who: Ron Pastorino (Ronpast)

Specimen available

Growing on on semi-grassy, sandy ground in the Big Sandy Creek Unit.
Caps up to 3.5 cm across and very delicate as were the stems.
Spore print white and spores dextrinoid.
Spores ~ 10.9-14.4 X 4.0-5.0 microns, spindle-shaped.
I think these are more likely L clypeolaria rather than L. magnispora because of the more subdued yellowish coloring, the slightly shorter spores and the more rounded shape of the spores.
