Observation 60765: Rhodocollybia Singer

I gave these specimens to Clive and I’m not sure if he saved them, maybe if you see this Clive and you still have the specimens you could have a look at the microscopic characteristics to confirm my identification.

L. alopochroa was previously placed in the genus Lepiotula due to the distinctly spurred dextrinoid spores, here is a link to the pages at the Landcareresearch site.

Not Lepiota

No Mike, this is definitely not a Lepiota. As I mentioned before, I was with Horak at the time and we checked this live and identified it as an undescribed Rhodocollybia that he had found several times. I have also seen it a couple of other times. In habit and texture it is amazingly like Rh. butyracea or Rh. filamentosa. Unfortunately I have no material of this collection.

Hi Karl, your collection there looks like Lepiota purpurata to me, this is what made me think this was L . alopochroa

Here is a link to the Landcareresearch page for L. purpurata

Here is a link to Noah’s observation of that species and one from Clive.

OK, I’ll try, thanks to Irene and Paul

This is the undescribed Rhodocollybia I mentioned. It looks more fibrillose than Mike’s, in the boreal habitat more like Rh. filamentosa.

I think you need an URL

But if you just want to add a picture, you could always create an observation and refer to it..

There’s a separate way to include an MO image from one of your observations. As for other images, it’s not hard to find free hosting for them.

How image?

Sorry, Paul and Irene, I can’t see on the page you linked to how to insert an image. The given link example inserts an html tag to an image on a server, doesn’t it? I haven’t uploaded my images to a server.

You’re welcome.

Nice to see you too, have been missing you here for a while.

And thanks, Paul! I have also wondered how to add pictures as comments, I think I’ve got it now.

I wish both of you and all other MO fans a Happy New Year!

According to the documentation you can, like this:

Hi Irene, good to see you on this forum as well. Yes, this is a Rhodocollybia, very similar to Rh. butyracea, but with a more grey cutis. I have found it in NZ several times, and even shown it live to Horak, and can confirm that it is the same as the one in his gallery. It is an as yet undescribed species. — I don’t know if I can append pictures on a comment in this forum, but should have a good one somewhere 8=).

I agree

It reminds a bit of Rhodocollybia butyracea (but not quite the same).

I think it is the same as E. Horak’s image on this page, the fourth image down in the third vertical row.
