Who: Douglas Smith (douglas)

Specimen available

Found in irrigated lawns.

Second photo is the spore print, the lighter print is after 2-3 hours, and the dark prints are 8-9 hours. The colors in both look to be the same. And I’m not sure, but I’d call these black. The photo is a good representation of the actual color.

The first micro-shot is of the gill edge at 400x in KOH. Cheilocystidia are lageniform and thick on a non-fertile edge.

The second micro-shot is of spores from the gill at 1000x in KOH. The spores are dark brown, warted, ellipsoid, with a clear germ pore. The spores are apr. ave. size 14 × 8 um.
