Observation 59067: Galerina uncialis (Britzelm.) Kuhner
When: 2010-10-09
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: Found under spruce and pine, some oak near by. Found on moss covered log, probably conifer, attached to the wood.

The first micro-shot is of the gill edge at 400x in Meltzer’s. The cheilocystidia is obvious here, and are fusiod-ventricose with lengthened thin necks, and blunt to acute apexes. No pleurocystidia were obs. The spore are dextrinoid on 4-spored basidia.

The second micro-shot is of spores from the stipe apex at 1000x in KOH. The spores are ellipsoid, roughened, brown, with clear plage on most of them. Apr. size is 9.5 × 5 um.

Also obs. the cap surface was a cutis, no gelatin nor pileocystidia. Not many caulocystidia obs, and mostly finger-like, cylindrical.

With the fairly rounded clearly roughened spores, and the fusiod-ventricose cheilocystidia, and no pleurocystidia, these are fairly clearly Galerina uncialis.
