Observation 45761: Pluteus sect. Pluteus
When: 2010-05-21
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: There has been some confusion between the cap color of Pluteus cervinus and Pluteus magnus
so when I found these with both dark as well as some lighter cap colors I was excited to check the cystidia on all of them and found them to have horned cystidia.
Pluteus cervinus or at least that is what I think it is, It seems that it was growing on deciduous wood but there may have been some conifer wood in there as well.
