Observation 50968: Lepiota tomentella J.E. Lange
When: 2010-08-14
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: Found under mixed hardwoods, mostly oak.

Adding some micro-details:

The first micro-shot is of the gill edge at 400x in Meltzer’s. The cheilocystidia are lageniform with broadly rounded ends. No pleurocystidia were obs. The basidia were obs. to be 4-spored.

The second micro-shot is of spores from the gill at 1000x in Meltzer’s. The spores are ellipsoid, smooth, dextrinoid with no germ pore, but with a super-hilar spur. Apr. size is 9 × 4 um.

Putting together with Funga Nordica key to Leptiota, this all seems to match well enough with Lepiota tomentella. (Although I’m getting a bit out of my depth here…)
