Observation 163789: Gymnopilus aeruginosus (Peck) Singer
When: 2014-04-20
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Here are some beat up Gymnopilus. I found this patch last year. This spring I have attempted to get up close at least 10 times but they are always guarded. Like most patches are. They are not fruiting as well as they did in the fall. I have posted this patch twice before. First time I didn’t notice any bluing and so we called em luteofolius. Next time I found em there was definaty bruising so we called em aeruginosus. I’m curious as to what people are thinking now.

I don’t see any cheilocystidia or pleurocystidia. I tried a crush mount that squeezed out some spores. Still working on an actual print but these are pretty dry. Actually these gills have the smoothest surface I have seen. I am still very new with microscopy. Also I haven’t found much info about what to look for microscopically. Any suggestions on improving my microscopy skills is very much appreciated.
