Observation 51258: Crepidotus applanatus (Pers.) P. Kumm.

When: 2010-08-22

Collection location: Thoiry, France [Click for map]

Who: Douglas Smith (douglas)

Specimen available

Found under spruce and fir.

Adding some micro-details:

The first micro-shot is of the gill edge at 400x in KOH. The cheilocystidia are broadly cylindrical to clavate, and some with funny lobes on the end. No pleurocystidia obs.

The second micro-shot is of spores from the gill at 1000x in KOH. The spores are light tan, globose, spiny. The apr. size is 4.5 um in diameter.

This all works pretty well with Crepidotus applanatus, with the small spiny globose spores, and the white hygrophanous cap.
