Observation 48568: Entoloma chytrophilum Wölfel, Noordel. & Dähncke
When: 2010-07-14
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: A tiny (about 10 mm in diameter) blue Entoloma fruiting on a very rotten, mossy stump, possibly pine (Pinus sylvestris) or birch (Betula pendula).

It’s reminiscent of E. chytrophilum I’ve published some time ago, however, I’ll have to wait for microscopic confirmation from an Entoloma expert.

basidia were both 2- and 4-sterigmate. There are a lot of spores of some other mushroom trapped in the pileipellis (as far as I remember, it was a Boletus edulis).

Wow! Thanks for your response and the microphotographs. I am going to give you a link to another forest crawler that I met with debbie and david at the recent NAMA foray in Clarion, PA. You may know her work. Your microphotographs of Pluteus and her microscopy seem to be cut from a similar cloth. I hope you will like seeing what she has done. By the way, could you describe the microscope you are using – possibly in your summary page?

sorry for the delay with the answer. Yes, with some help from Olga Morozova (Komarov Botanical Institiute, St. Petersburg) it keyed out nicely to E. chytrophilum at the entoloma.nl website. The wavy-nodulose spores are very distinctive.

I found the little mushroom several more times (the crawling mode really helps, lol!), – it prefers very rotten pine stumps covered with moss. There are a lot of poorly maintained planted pine forests around and within Akademgorodok so looking for more specimens took a lot of time but was a success after all :)

I’m adding a couple of microphotographs.

Lovely mushroom!

Tatiana – did you get a positive ID on this one?
