Observation 81240: Marasmius bulliardii Quél.

When: 2011-11-01

Collection location: Parque de Monsanto, Lisboa, Portugal [Click for map]

Who: zaca

No specimen available

Very small mushrooms (cap ~2.5mm, stem ~2cm) growing on quercus tree leaves. The hymenium is very characteristic and resembles Marasmius. Looking for information I found in the 1st reference two similar species. Since the photos are not conclusive about the existence of a collar and the substrate where they grew, I think it might be Marasmius bulliardii. Due to the size of the mushooms I made cross sections of the cap and observe under the microscope. I join a set of photos. The spores are elliptical with aproximate size of 7 × 3.6 µm.
