Observation 139334: Hygrophoraceae Lotsy
When: 2013-07-08
0 Sequences

Beautiful white Pileus/white stipe fungi in excellent condition. They were growing in the sandy loam substrate. The stipes were fibres with no aromas or distinguishing habits. This was a really crisp squeeky clean fungi find, but so far have been unable to get a spore print unless it is white also.. Under close magnified examination (loop 15x) it would appear that the spore could be white. (there was only a small number of spore-like cells on the white paper. I will try and scope them later and write up the results..

It is a good idea to add info on what part of the mushroom is in each micrograph, as this can be really hard to determine later. I looked through the micrographs and did not see a whole lot of really useful info. One thing you can do is make a spore print, and have one of your micrographs be spores from the print at the highest magnification your scope can do. Also do some of the gill edges, and a cross section of the pileipellis.

Scoped Images added

I have loaded some scoped images of this fungi and hopefully they will help in further ID. Some of the images may not be helpful as I am still running a bit blind and have lots to learn. First Three images,72244,249 & 251 (micrographs), are from section of Cap and gill area. Next three images,72253,254 & 255 (Micrographs), are from a section off the top of the cap. The next Five images, 72258,259,260,261 & 262 (micrographs), are taken from a mid-section of the Stipe.
The last image, (micrograph), is a section cut from the top of the cap and through the gills.


Internet crashed whilst loading images. All up now.
