Observation 190350: Mycena chloranthoides Maas Geest.
When: 2014-11-27

Notes: Growing in duff under redwood and live oak. Found only three mushrooms, close to each other. One had distinctly yellow-marginate gills; in another, there is barely any difference in color (gill edge vs. side); and the third is something in between. I didn’t check the odor in the field (was thinking this was M. citrinomarginata), but when I removed the mushrooms from the fridge after a few hours, they had a strong iodine odor (like M. filopes).

The match with the description of M. chlorantha (http://home.online.no/~araronse/Mycenakey/chlorantha.htm) is quite good. M. archangeliana has the odor, but gills are not marginate. M. chlorantoides does not have the odor. The problem is that chlorantha does not seem to be known from United States.

[4 Nov 2016] Brian Perry suggests that we should not give odor so much weight and that M. chloranthoides is a better name.

Chelocystidia are yellow in water. After staining a gill edge in Congo Red and then mounting it in KOH, the whole edge was shining yellow. My poor scope camera doesn’t show it quite well.
