Observation 83170: Phloeomana speirea (Fr.) Redhead
When: 2011-11-20
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: Growing on bark of a maple or poplar log.

Spores 8-10 × 4.5-5 microns. Spore print was taken in Mezler’s. It was too thin for checking amyloid reaction, but I suppose from the spore micrograph that they are inamyloid. (Can we be confident about this conclusion?)

It was difficult to get useful information from the pileus/pileipellis, except that the trama becomes quite dark in Mezler’s. I’m not sure it’s not a Hemimycena, but assuming it’s a Mycena, the book by Maas Geesteranus leads only to M. speirea. The book says that the caps “dry whitish”, but what I’m seeing is brown or grey-brown.
