Observation 82844: Clitocybe compressipes

When: 2011-11-18

Collection location: Hunlock Creek, Pennsylvania, USA [Click for map]

Who: Dave W (Dave W)

Specimen available

Ordinarily, I would not be so confident about using a species name that I had not ever seen… in the field or a manual. But, in addition to the habitat and typical small whitish (faded) Clitocybe macro characters, the one example seen here shows the lengthwise central compression. The smaller ones have solid cylindrical stipes.

Will look at spores.

on 11/25 and made another collection. 4th and 5th photos taken 11/25. Along a road in a mix of grass and gravel.

Got a nice white spore print.

Spores appear to be in the 6-8 × 3-4 range, pretty consistent with the Mushroom Observer account of C. compressipes.
