Pluteus magnus

Pluteus magnus in its original sense is very probably a synonym of Pluteus petasatus

The pointed “magnus type” cystidia are common in P. petasatus near the lamella edge and sometimes away from the lamella edges.

I’ll look….

The cystidia are unique and obvious, so get a photo there. There are very very few confirmed obs. of this species, and I’d like to see another one (or just one…). I think you need the pleurocystidia to confirm this, but they are very numerous at least.

A while back….

I found this mushroom or one very similar, and Alan suggested Pluteus magnus. I have not done microscopy on it, but will. It was also where Kuo’s key led me.

I don’t think you get to use this name without photos of the cystidia…

Did you do microscopy on this one?
