Notes: A collection of only three mushrooms, found in a pile of cut (redwood?) branches. No discernible odor.
Basidia 4-spored and (very likely) 2-spored as well, ~26+5 x 9. Spores 8-10 × 5.5-7. Cheilocystidia 30-36 × 12-17, without neck; necks up to 22 microns long. Hyphae of both stipitipellis and pileipellis diverticulate, the latter rather thick (up to 4 microns).
The microscopy would not be a bad match for M. abramsii, but subcana seems better. The mushrooms are relatively squatty and the number of lamelae reaching stipe is in the range of subcana (14-16), not of abramsii (19-27). “Smith also indicates the presence of a pale to white form of the species subcana on redwood twigs in northern California” (quote from B. Perry’s MSc thesis).
