Observation 4485: Galerina clavata (Velen.) Kuhner
When: 2007-10-21
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: Ok, this one. I thought it was Mycena when I grabbed it. But got a spore print, and it was light brown, so not that. Then in class, Dr. Desjardin told me to get the genus on these. So, I came back with Conocybe, but no. So, I looked at the cystidia, and they had bulbous ends, and looked that up, and came back with Conocybe. He said no, stop saying Conocybe, look at the pileipelis. So I did, and it was a cutis, and I looked at what that might be, so I cam back, could it be Galerina? He said, ok finally you get there. This doesn’t look like any Galerina I’ve seen, but he tells me, this looks exactly like most Galerina. So, the two Galerina in Arora are not typical for the genus perhaps, and this is also a normal look for the genus.

I have microscopic photos on this also, and I’ll get them posted at some point. I saved these also, and I might try for a species at some point too.

They are very atractive little guys, I like how the first photo came out.
