Observation 160074: Mycena bulliformis B.A. Perry & Desjardin

When: 2014-02-18

Collection location: Point Reyes National Seashore, Marin Co., California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Ron Pastorino (Ronpast)

No specimen available

These were growing on an old log probably Bishop pine.
Caps up to 1.9 cm across.
Spore print white and spores amyloid.
Spores ~ 8-12 X 6-7.5 microns and smooth.
I should have confirmed the ID by checking for “bulliform” cells on the cap.
Found out too late as they degraded too fast on me.

Brian Perry told me that they often have violet-brown marginate gills. These did not appear to have them but he said they often do not and he also found some this last weekend that did not. That’s a good sign, since not much of anything could be found the last few days.
