Observation 179899: Pluteus hispidulus (Fr.) Gillet
When: 2014-09-21
Who: zaca
No herbarium specimen

Notes: If I interpret correctly the description in the reference, this can well be the rare species Pluteus hispidulus.
It was a single specimen growing together with Gymnopilus junonius (see observation 179898) on the remains of a Quercus suber tree, in a place of seepage rainwater.
The cap has approximately 1.5 cm in diameter and the stipe about 5 cm long, thin but firm. The cuticle is somewhat distinct for a Pluteus, mingled with tufts brownish gray on lighter background, darker in the center and grayish white at the margin.
