Observation 4051: Pluteus pellitus (Pers.) P. Kumm.
When: 2007-08-15
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Saw this on the walk into work growing near a stump. Only realized afterwards that the cap seems a bit too viscid and smooth for P. petasatus.

Applied the name P. pellitus based on Darvin’s comment. Hopefully I’ll get to see it fruit again and have a chance to check the cheilocystidia.

Pluteus pellitus is described by Dr. Vellinga as “shiny white” and solitary. It has crowded cheilocystidia that are thick-walled with hooks at the apex. Vol.II of Flora Agaricina Neerlandica.
