Observation 195397: Tricholoma (Fr.) Staude
When: 2014-12-30
No herbarium specimen

Notes: This species was growing in a small area ( circle 20 feet D.) under a Water Oak with a mix of hardwoods close and pine outside the circle.

Cap – 3 inches across. Mahogany brown on mature caps. I think the top can be described as fibrous-matted with scales at the outer edges. The appeared felted with tufts of fibers lifting toward the outer 1/3. Obtusely umbonate. Top can be peeled back to center. Flesh is off white -see photos. The mature cap was not slimy even though it had been raining off and on all day.

Gills – off-white with brown spots. Adnexed with notch. Close.

Stalk – 3/4 " diameter. length about same as Cap Width. Hollow. Club shaped base. Tapers toward base.

Odor – I could not detect an odor in one I harvested today.
Taste – I could not detect a taste.

Spore Print – white
Microscopy – I did not see any clamp connection in the center cells of a single gill. At the cap surface, I saw a few of the long cells that make up a slime surface on other mushrooms. However, they were few. The central cells that underlie the cap surface appeared organized in lateral layers.

Spore Size:
[20/1/1] L (-) 6.2 – 7.7 (-7.8) μm x W (4.2-) 4.4 – 5.3 (-) μm, (L = 6.7 μm, W =4.9 μm), Q (1.24-) 1.26 – 1.49 (-), Q=1.36 Ellipsoid

the spores in Melanoleuca are ornamented with amyloid warts.

Why not Tricholoma Transmutans?
