e.g. in Krieglsteiner, G.J. & A. Gminder (2010): Die Großilze Baden-Württembergs., Bd. 5. the description of P. christinae contains “taste slightly bitter”. About the gills: Perhaps I could find a photo on my harddisk later…
christinae described to be bitter? I haven’t. Another character is the very crowded gills in jennyae.
I don’t agree that they are difficult to tell apart without microscopy – but I promise – next time I find it, I’ll save one and add a micro shot (jennyae has smaller cystidia too) :-)
…to differ between the two species without the spore size. The colors are the same and also smell and taste could be identical. Especially the smell of P. christinae is very variable. Perhaps I’ll find later some time to translate a piece of our paper:
Garnweidner E., P. Karasch & A. Kunze (2010): Bemerkenswerte Neufunde aus der Gattung Phaeocollybia in Bayern. Mycol. Bav. 11: 15-28.
Summary: Four species from the genus Phaeocollybia (Phaeocollybia arduennensis, Ph. festiva, Ph. jennyae und Ph. lugubris) are described in detail with photographs from an cultivated spruce-forest with unusual species richness near Starnberg, Upper-Bavaria. An additional description (Phaeocollybia christinae) illustrates a ﬁnding from a cultivated beech-forest at the border of a group of young norway spruce in the district of Augsburg, Swabia.
Actually, I don’t remember if I scoped it.. but compared to christinae, I recognize jennyae by the brighter colours and its bitter taste. They have different smell too.
You are taking advantage of your snow-bound time, I see!
I can’t wait for our local Phaecollybia to come back…I just got a beautiful guide to PNW Phaeocollybia sp. by Lorelei Norvell and I can’t wait to use it!
that it was already listed (but without any obses). Found another new species to upload, and it worked too.
Love this genus.
So it worked I suppose?
