Observation 147349: Pluteus petasatus (Fr.) Gillet

Single specimen growing on an fallen oak log in dry conditions.
Spores ~ 6.0-8.1 X 4.0-6.0 microns.
Plenty of gill cystidia. much of the cystidia had short horns and much also was conical shaped.
The spores are a good match for Pluteus cervinus but the cystidia seems a little unusual.

Hi Ron,

Check if it has clamp-connections on the pileipellis. If it doesn’t then this is probably Pluteus petasatus. The conical metuloids with no hooks are usually quite common in petasatus
