Observation 202849: Hohenbuehelia mastrucata (Fr.) Singer
When: 2015-04-14
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Spore print white, 7.5-10 × 5 microns

On decaying log in area with mostly Populus trichocarpa (black cottonwood) close to a biking path.

Largest fruit body is 5.5 × 3.5 cm

Mushroom expert says that H. mastrucata is an eastern species… however, this sure looks like it.

H. atrocaerulea var grisea is known from the Pacific Northwest, but macroscopically this appears more like H. mastrucata.

look for “bugs/nematodes” under the scope trapped in the hyphae…
