Observation 85401: Hygrophorus morrisii Peck

When: 2011-12-29

Collection location: Northwestern Portland, Multnomah Co., Oregon, USA [Click for map]

Who: Sava Krstic (sava)

Specimen available

Growing in a grass strip along sidewalk (suburban area), under spruces.

Collected on a wet day; caps viscid, stems not viscid. Odor none, or mildly of almonds.

Spore print white, spores 8-9 × 5-5.5 microns.

Compared with descriptions of H. agathosmus, H. pustulatus and H. morrisii. Stem surface is peculiar and one would expect it to be a distinguishing characteristic. Kind of woolly, from top to bottom. Perhaps that’s “furfuraceous-flocculent” of H. morrisii.
