Hi Walt

I’ve finally gotten around to sequencing the sample that you kindly sent. This collection is 100% identical in the ITS region to my Obs 122799. This is as I suspected and the ITS sequence is similar to, but not exactly the same as, others in GenBank attributed to I. rimosa. Thanks for your help. I now have confirmed collections of this exact variety from 3 different locations in OH, NJ and NY.

Just looked at it under the scope …

Thanks for sending this Walt!! Spores are smooth and bean shaped. Cheilocystidia present and pleurocystidia absent. Microscopically this looks a lot like my Obs 122799, but these specimens look bigger and more robust than the delicate ones of 122799. I’ll eventually get DNA on this one.

I’ve collected some similar ones this year, but the location that gave me 122799 hasn’t shown anything yet in 2013.

Anytime you or Dave W have a good multi specimen collection of Inocybe with excellent pictures, do not hesitate to send me a sample. I’m trying to make some some sense of the difficult I. rimosa and I. fastigiata groups.

looks like mine.

Over this past weekend I found two similar looking types.

One had bean-shaped spores and the other had stellate spores.
