It’s nice to see a pluteus that isn’t drab brown for once. :)

They’re fat little buggers aren’t they?

I’d like to…

I’d like to see those cystidia!

Pluteus are so cool!

What type of wood is it growing from?

Important features in Pluteus

Well, you need to look for the cap surface features, and the cystidia on the gill edge and face. The spores will help make sure it is a Pluteus, but most Pluteus spores are all about the same, sub-globose to ellipsoid, smooth, without a germ pore, and about 7-6 × 6-5 um in size.

I’ve been going through Pluteus a bunch lately, and you can take a look at recent examples in my latest Pluteus observations. I’ve been posting a bunch of microscope shots on Pluteus lately.

For P. romellii, the cap surface will be a hymeniderm (single row of upward facing cells, like the basidia of the hymenium), and the cystidia will be thin walled. Looks like the chrome yellow stipe with the hymeniderm cap surface will make this id.

what should I look for under the microscope ?
