Collection location: Fair Oaks, California, USA [Click for map]
Growing from the ground underneath the side of an oak log.
Both the taste and smell are mild, the stem base discolors little to none. It had remnants of a slight/evanescent veil on the cap margin.
The spores are smooth with a germ pore.
Spore range = (8) 8.5 – 10 × 4 – 6 μ
Average spore = 9.27 × 5.02 μ
Average Q = 1.86
30 spores measured.
Pleurocystidia measurements – 45×16, 47×17, 49×14, 50×13, 55×15 μ
Cheilocystidia measurements – 42×14, 44×14, 47×15, 53×15 μ
Caulocystidia measurements – 51×14, 56×14 μ
All cystidia was similar in shape, with the cheilo and pleuro having yellowish walls in KOH.
The basidia were 4-spored and brachybasidioles were present.
I haven’t been able to key this specimen well, attempting to explore all the options despite not being clear on some parts of the key only brought me a headache and the suspicion that this may not be in North American Species of Psathyrella.
