Observation 50974: Lacrymaria lacrymabunda (Bull.) Pat.
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 KOH. The cheilocystidia are cylindrical with sub-capitate ends.

The second micro-shot is of spores on the gill at 1000x in KOH. The spores are dark-grey, ellipsoid, warted, with a germ pore.

This is pretty clearly Lacrymaria lacrymabunda.
