Observation 23447: Crepidotus applanatus var. applanatus

When: 2009-07-20

Collection location: Geneva, Switzerland [Click for map]

Who: Douglas Smith (douglas)

No specimen available

Found and id’ed by others at the SMG meeting.

We actually looked at the spores here, they were globose and finely spiny, about 5-7 um in size. So that agrees well with the species.

I asked about a larger spored version, with spores 8-10 um in size. It seems that this doesn’t exist in Europe, at least they hadn’t heard of it. Although this seems to exist in the north east of the US at least.

The white with subglobose spores, sounds in the Applanatus group. These are all clamped, but checking is good in this Genus in general.

Hmm… interesting…

Hmm… ok, then. Next week I’ll try to look up some info on that species, and take a look at the details.

It would be nice to just include a large variation in spore size, since other than that the two are exactly the same.

If you mean Crepidotus malachius

this is a species that most of the mycologists in Europe do still synonymize with that.
