Observation 200652: Psathyrella spadicea (Schaeff.) Singer
When: 2015-03-16

Notes: These were growing in a cluster near the base of a conifer.
Caps up to 4.8 cm across.
Couldn’t get a spore print.
Also unable to find spores or basidia under the microscope for three specimens tested, young and old. One smooth, brownish spore ~ 7.3 X 4.9 microns possibly from one of the fbs shown in photo.
Plenty of Cheilocystidia and Pleurocystidia with incrustations and acute apexes.
These seem to be sterile fruit-bodies of Psathyrella spadicea but I’m open to other suggestions.
