Here’s a very nice key to European Deconica sp. that I just found online. It’s geared to European species, but seems to work just fine with at least this one.


Rhomboid, or mitriform thick walled spores, purple-brown gills at maturity and a viscid, glabrous cap with only a bit of veil at the cap edge all fit this sighting.
