Observation 28893: Inocybe agardhii (Lund) Orton
When: 2009-11-08
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Found as part of a long distance foray of the Bio 800 course at SFSU. Found and id’ed by others from the class.

This one was getting passed around as a strange Cortinarius. Me and Prof. Desjardin looked it over and agreed that the gills didn’t look right for Cort, even though it had clear cortina-like veil fragments on the stipe. He put a gill quickly under the scope, and saw it was an Inocybe, and that the basidia were pigmented. So, it is a member of section Malocybe of genus Inocybe. Using the Nishida key of Inocybe for California, you get this species.
