Observation 175536: Crepidotus (Fr.) Staude
When: 2014-08-29
0 Sequences

This small colony of fungi existed on a decaying wet fallen section of a branch. (possibly eucalyptus). I have what I believe to be a similar loaded image file (MO Obs 167357) which has not been fully identified.
The fungi displayed the underside (gills to the direct light), no matter where it was attached to the wood. The cap was closest to the host in all cases. The stipes were extremely short and easily removed from the wood. I have provided several Photo images of different stages of growth and showing changes in habit. The specimen in this example was fresh. The top face of the pileus of the fungi showed an unusual texture when examined closely.. Following the photographs of the fungi are several Micrographs.
The first image loaded is of the Spore Print, which was a light Brown (Shown on white paper).
The next five images show increasing magnification up to x100 and the reagent was KOH.
The next three images also are of increasing magnification and the reagent used was Lugols.
Although Clitocybe semiocculta physically fits the ID my references give this species to having a spore print colour of White??
