When: 2010-06-19

Collection location: Southeastern Gifford Pinchot National Forest, Washington, USA [Click for map]

Who: Sava Krstic (sava)

Specimen available

Found these two years ago; one of my first saved collections and first uses of the microscope. There were three of these mushrooms and they appeared to be terrestrial. Dick Bishop ID’d them as P. tomentosulus, using Matchmaker, white color, and the cystidia without horns.

But with Pluteus you never know until you put all the pieces of the puzzle (macro, micro and molecules) together.

I’ll let you know when the specimens arrive and keep you updated on my observations

Thanks again for sending them!

I would agree with Walt. This doesnt’ look the same as ob#93719. The pilius cuticle appears to be less than tomentose and these elements and those on the stipe appear to be dark in large part. It’s good that you’re also sending this to Fredo.

Not P. tomentosulus

or at least my concept of that species which should have a tomentose cap cuticle.
