Observation 93725: Pluteus leoninus (Schaeff.) P. Kumm.
When: 2011-06-09
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: Something I came across in my photo stash and decided to post after reading Else’s comments on the sections of the genus Pluteus in observation 93719
It’s a very common species in our birch forests.

Pluteus leoninus is a very rewarding representative of Pluteus sect. Hispidoderma when it comes to microscopy :)

I always enjoy your fine micro-images. Sad to say, I’ve never found this one.
