Observation 217162: Pluteus Fr.
When: 2015-09-26
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Collected at the RAMA foray. For some reason this was IDed as P. atromarginatus though the gill edges are white. The specimen with the fully expanded and lighter-colored cap is probably another species.

I’m relaying on index fungorum about names validity (so does local mushroom society – Slovenia)


Since there is no ‘Species Fungorum synonymy’ link there, it is valid.

As far as I remember wrinkled cap (at some specimens) should be determining factor, as here:

The website in the comment below shows a European species. It does look similar to that of this observation.
At the same time, P. magnus has been deprecated; the new name is P. petasatus. See http://mushroomobserver.org/name/show_name/3395.

I have collected P. petasatus, and it clearly is not the same mushroom.
