Observation 62856: Tubaria (W.G. Sm.) Gillet
When: 2011-01-25
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: These were small with caps about 9 mm across and fairly tough, thinly hollow stems about 1.5 mm thick.
The spore print appeared to be reddish brown, but was sparse.
The spores were ~ 6.8-8.1 X 4.6-6.1 microns, elliptic and smooth.
The cap edge and stem were rather shaggy but no distinct ring was apparent.
Since the gills were adnate and I’m only guessing Galerina at this point to get a starting point.

Looked for inflated sphaerocysts on pileipellis

but couldn’t see any. However, my experience with the microscopic techniques for verifying this type of characteristic is still limited.

seem to be smooth and lack a plage or distinct germ pore, check pileipellis for inflated spherical or pear shaped sphaerocysts, possibly Flammulaster.
