Observation 50855: Inocybe asterospora Quél.
When: 2010-08-13
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: Found under mixed hardwoods, mostly oak and beech

Adding some micro-details:

The first micro-shot is the gill edge at 400x in KOH. The cheilocystidia are metuloid and encrusted. There are also numerous pleurocystidia.

The second micro-shot is of spores from the gill at 1000x in KOH. The spores are tan, and nodulose. Nodulose strongly, such that the spores look like stars. The apr. size is 9 × 5 um.

With these strongly nodulose spores, and the growth with oaks, and the bulbose base, that is slightly marginate, these are Inocybe asterospora.
