When: 2009-12-20
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Strongly capitate cheilocystidia forming a sterile band, 25 – 42 microns long, spores long-ellipsoid to ellipsoid or bean-shaped, smooth, thin-walled, 6-7.5 microns long, 4 – 5 microns wide.

Eye3
Recognized by sight: Thinly viscid, dark orangey-red cap, smooth-capped, rather round and with an involute margin, hygrophanous, but not as quickly as in T. furfuracea, stipe relatively firm compared to some other Tubaria, growth on relatively large pieces of wood. White marginate gills.
Based on microscopic features: Strongly capitate, densely packed cheilocystidia along gill margin (macroscopically visible as tufted white cells along gill margin).

Well, looking at what Dimi has put on his page there, those cystidia aren’t Galerina, so if yours look like that, then this is Tubaria. It would be interesting to get more info on this, since there is this kinda hard to separate edge between Tubaria and Galerina there, when you get close to G. sideroides.

I look forward to further posts of yours on these little brown guys…

Hmmm… this was on oak debris, and

I used this page as a reference: http://mushroomhobby.com/...
In the next few days, I will put up a bunch more Galerina and Tubaria that I scoped this week – looking forward to your input.

Could be Galerina…

These could be Galerina sideroides, which I’ve looked at from herbarium samples, but I haven’t actually found it myself. It seems to happen on the California coast in woody conifer debris. They have capitate cystidia, with thin wavy necks, and fairly consistent with most cystidia looking the same. The caulocystidia are also fairly consistent and similar. The spores for these Galerina are smooth and thin walled, and non-dextrinoid (along with being ellipsiod and lacking a germ pore). What you site here is a little small, the ones I’ve looked at the ave. size is 7.5-8 um x 4.8-5.0 um.

Have you looked up the details for T. hiemalis, I don’t think I have a good description of that one on hand. Are the cytsidia supposed to be capitate for that taxon?

Only have my drawings – I don’t have access to my camera-scope right now.

Will post scans of my drawings when I get access to a scanner. Techno-impaired right now.
Here’s my description

Photo of the cystidia?

Do you have a photo of the cheilocystidia here? What were the spores like?
