Observation 68567: Kuehneromyces vernalis (Peck) Singer & A.H. Sm.
When: 2011-06-01
Herbarium specimen reported
0 Sequences

These had translucent striations on the smooth caps, which were up to 5.0 cm across. The caps were hygrophanous.
The spore print was brown and the spores were ~ 7.0-7.5 X 4.0-4.4 microns.
I suppose one could also call these K. vernalis which is supposedly a synonym in some references but not apparently in Index Fungorum. These didn’t have a ring but did have a fibrillose ring-zone and they looked very similar to the Ceska’sMO from BC.http://mushroomobserver.org/63843?q=4gn3

You should call them K. vernalis, so this obs. will be included with all the other K. vernalis from the Sierras. I believe I did a full work up on some last year, you can compare to that obs. to see.
