When: 2014-10-15
(21.1304° -99.4567° 1800m)

Notes: Growing from a chunk of decayed hardwood – either Quercus or Liquidambar.

Spores and basidia turning black in melzers. Spores smooth and ellipsoid, hyaline in KOH, with a conspicuous hilar appendage. Basidia sometimes with granular contents. Cheilocystidia present and hyaline in both KOH and melzers. Cheilocystidia sometimes with refractive contents that turn black in melzers.

Q = 1.5 [1.7 ; 1.9] 2.2 ; N = 15 ; C = 95%

I have the dried material right in front of me and it is in good condition. Where would you like me to send it?

did you apply KOH at any point in working with this material, either as a spot test or in making any mounts? If so, did you notice any spore or tissue reactions? Do you have the collection still, or any others like it, which could be made available for loan?

Reminds me of Chrysomphalina
