Observation 89936: Leratiomyces percevalii (Berk. & Broome) Bridge & Spooner
When: 2012-03-17
No herbarium specimen

Notes: These had caps up to 6.8 cm across.
They were growing in a grassy area but connected to woody debris with rhizomorphs.
Spore print was blackish and spores were goldish brown in KOH.
Spores were ~ 13.2-15.8 X 8.0-10.2 microns. Q(ave.) = 1.55
Cheilocystia was flexose and rather variable in size.
These probably could also be called Stropharia riparia.
KOH on the cap was neg.
They seemed a little different from the common “Stropharia riparia” which were also fruiting on wood chips 1/4 mile away.
