Observation 50716: Inocybe splendens var. phaeoleuca (Kühner) Kuyper

When: 2010-08-11

Collection location: Bratislavsky Lesny Park, Bratislava, Slovakia [Click for map]

Who: Douglas Smith (douglas)

Specimen available

Found under mixed hardwoods, mostly oak and beech

Adding micro-details :

The first photos is of the gill edge at 400x in KOH. The cheilocystidia are metuloid, and encrusted. There were also plenty of pleurocystidia obs.

The second photo is of spores from the gill at 1000x in KOH. The spores are tan, ellipsoid, smooth, slightly pointed, with no germ pore. The apr. size is 9 × 5 um.

Putting this together, with the growth under oak, the very smooth stipe that is finely pruinose, the pale pink-brown colors, it seems that these reasonably match Inocybe splendens var. phaeoleuca, using Funga Nordica.
