Observation 140270: Inocybe calospora Quél.
When: 2013-07-10
(43.4048° -70.6199° 3m)

Notes: Collected from the edge of a sandy trail near Pinus rigida and scrub oaks in the Kennebunk Plains Wildlife Management Area, Kennebunk, ME. This species and another very different Inocybe (my Obs 140279) were growing 30-40 feet apart on the same trail. The very distinctive spiny/stellate spores were subglobose to globouse. Cystidia were thick walled, relatively small and not encrusted. They are probably only cheilocystidia. See photomicrographs for shape and size.

ITS1/5.8S/ITS2 region is a 97% match in GenBank with HQ586853 identified by Dr. Brandon Matheny as Inocybe calospora, so it’s quite close. Micro matches I. calospora also. Look at those spores!
