Observation 172986: Pluteus plautus group
When: 2014-06-30

Notes: A smallish and locally very common Pluteus which keys out as P. plautus but seems to be one of several distinct “plautus” taxa here in Siberia.

There are abundant refractive hyphae in the subpellis; pleurocystidia not very abundant, of 2 major types – large, utriform to broadly clavate hyaline elements and smaller, narrower, (bluntly) fusiform-lageniform elements, and then often with small mucronate apical appendages. The latter seem to have denser or slightly pigmented intracellular contents because they stain a warmer red hue in Congo Red.
