Observation 21582: Parasola leiocephala (P.D. Orton) Redhead, Vilgalys & Hopple

When: 2005-02-16

Collection location: Sausalito, California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Ron Pastorino (Ronpast)

No specimen available

These look like young Parasola leiocephala. The spores were apple to heart shaped and appeared to be in the right size range, approx. 9 X 8.5 microns. While the spore photo is somewhat blurry, the eccentric appical pore is noticeable but a hilar appendage is not distinct….which is why I went with “Promising”.
