Collection location: Big Basin Redwoods State Park, Santa Cruz Co., California, USA [Click for map]
Who: Sava Krstic (sava)
Scattered in duff and on buried Doug fir cone. No noticeable odor.
Basidia 4- and 2-spored, ~26+5 x 8. Spores in the normal leptocephala range (8-11 × 4.5 -6), but there were also larger ones (up to 13 × 7.5), probably from 2-spored basidia. Cheilocystidia forming a sterile band, ~37 × 12. No pleurocystidia observed. Caulocystidia abundant and deformed in the unique leptocephala-style. Clamps present.
I didn’t recognize it as leptocephala in the field because it didn’t have the characteristic nitrous odor and it was smaller, more fragile and lighter-colored that usual.
