Observation 154050: Marasmius epiphyllus (Pers.) Fr.
When: 2013-11-16

Notes: On petioles of Fagus leaves. Caps up to 2 mm across.


A. Spores 8-13 × 5.
B. Basidium 7.5 microns wide.
C-E. Cheilocystidia. Could also be pleurocystidia because I was unable to separate the gill edge. Size ~35 × 10.
F-H. Caulocystidia.
I. From an attempt to look at pileipellis. What we see could be a hymeniform pileipellis with cystidia, or perhaps hymenium with pleurocystidia.
J. The second attempt to scope pileipellis. It was a relly thin scalp and all that could be seen is a formless (gelatinous?) mass with hyphae less than 1 micron wide.

The shape of chelocystidia and (especially) caulocystidia is different from drawings in Fungi of Switzerland.
