Observation 80776: Lyophyllum boudieri Kühner & Romagn.

When: 2011-10-16

Collection location: Thoiry, France [Click for map]

Who: Douglas Smith (douglas)

Specimen available

Found under spruce and fir.

Funny little guys, appear to have white spores. With the dark grey stipes, and the strange off-white squamules, it seems like I should be able to id it… but haven’t had enough time to go through the books. Thought I would post it here first, and just see if people had an idea.

In Funga Nordica it is listed as Lyophyllum boudieri, but there is no Tephrocybe in that source, that is just a section in Lyophyllum. There seems to be quite a bit of use of Tephrocybe boudieri on the web from a Google search. Also in Index fungorum, Tephrocybe boudieri is the “current name”. So, I’ve put them in as synonyms, and left both approved, people can decide for themselves if Tephrocybe is a separate genus, or a section of Lyophyllum.

But what genera will they end up in…

Tephrocybe was my first guess, but it was kinda out of a hat. I didn’t have any good reason for it really. I looked T. palustris briefly, and that didn’t look right, and I haven’t gone anywhere since then with this.

my best suggestion is Tephrocybe

I have something a lot like this on my desk
