A little bit of microscopic anatomy is available on-line now…

Gracias, Eduardo.


We can confirm that this is a species of Limacella [edit]

It was hard to do because of the small stipes that were clearly difficult to dry; however, Cristina found acrophysalides in the stipe tissue this afternoon.

Yesterday, I was able to see (in a collapsed state) the gluten-supporting hyphae on the pileus…typically bearing plentiful clamps.

The minutes spores are very distinctly punctate (bearing small raised warts) at 1250×.

After a little more effort, we will post what we have found as an initial, partial description on the WAO site under the code name Limacella “sp-PAN-L01”. (Note: Page does not yet exist as I post this comment.)

Very best,


We have your material, thank you.

Hola Eduardo,
Quisiera saber si has podido hacerle microscopía a las colecciones y qué clave usaste para la determinación? Sería chévere saber si se ha publicado, en forma de tesis o algo semejante, una clave específica para Panamá. Actualmente ando trabajando con RET en varias colecciones del género Amanita colectadas allá. Por cierto, acá estaremos pendientes del envio. Genial obtener más material de la misma localidad!

My address is here:

Yes, now we have many in this area, Im going to dry a specimen, send me your address.

After the spore print,…

Could you please dry the specimen? I am very curious to know more about it, Eduardo.

Very best,

Not a dried specimen, the stem and cap are viscid when young, im make a spore print..

Is it correct that there is no dried specimen of this mushroom?

I see that the gills are not attached to the stem; and the cap looks viscid. The nickel shows us the size of the cap. Can you tell us a bit more about this collection. Was the stem dry? It doesn’t look too viscid in the photos. Did you try for a spore print?

Very best,
