Notes: Found on a moss covered rotting stump, in mixed hardwood forest.
The first micro-shot is of a gill edge at 400x in Meltzer’s. Here the cheilocystidia can be seen, and they are lageniform to cylindrical with blunt apecies. No pleurocystidia were observed. The spores here are dextrinoid and from 4-spored basidia.
The second micro-shot is of the spores from the stipe apex at 1000x in KOH. Here the spores are ellipsoid, pointed, mostly smooth, with a plage, and the perispore pulls back from the plage to produce “ears”. So, these are calyptrate spores.
Putting this together you get Galerina calyptrata pretty cleanly.
