to find a more complete Pseudoclitocybe key, but haven’t succeeded.
In Moser’s “Kleine Kryptogamenflora” is 3 species (cyathiformis, obbata and expallens). The cap colour fits his description of obbata, but not much else..
Pseudoclitocybe obbata does not fit: wrong colour and wrong habitat. Ditto for P. expallens or P. (Cantharellula) oregonensis. Pseudoclitocybe cyathiformis was the closest, because it grows also on wood. Whereas P. cyathiformis usually grows on dead coniferous wood laying on the ground, this specimen grew on the bark of living Quercus garryana trunk, ca. 120 cm above the ground.We agree that our specimen does not really fit to P. cyathiformis but it is close to it. Cf. our MO Observations #71649 & #84741. OAC
Pseudoclitocybe obbata – or something else in the genus?
It doesn’t look like cyathiformis with that short stem and striate cap.
