Collection location: Washington, USA [Click for map]
About 2.25" tall (dried). Cap is about 33mm wide when dry. Stipe 8mm wide (dry).
Growing solitary in the woods along a trail of soil and moss, although many trees and plants were also in the nearby area.
Bruising blue from the base up just over 1" and could contain both the toxin muscarine and psilocybin/psilocin.
Spore print is rusty-burgundy brown with a hint of dark orange. Spores might be described by a novice (myself) as meteor-shaped with several protuberances.
Aroma is more or less standard shroomy aroma.
Cheilocystida quite abundant. Pleurocystidia also quite abundant. A fair but small percentage of pleurocystidia stain brownish in koh and congo red combined.
Does not macroscopically match Inocybe calimastrata, Inocybe hirsuta var. maxima, Inocybe haemacta, Inocybe tricolor, or Inocybe aeruginascens.
Does have resemblance to Inocybe corydalina var. corydalina but does not match spore description.
I can not find descriptions for Inocybe coelestium or Inocybe corydalina var. erinaceomorpha using Google so they can’t be ruled out. I will take this moment to mention that Inocybe is not sufficiently covered in the public domain (ie the internet) and therefore should be re-encouraged.
A final, humbling note: I just learned thru the updated Celestron Digital Imager site that instead of 15x (which I was told explicitly in email by Celestron), the imager is “about” 100×. So, all of my posts from today and beforehand showing 600x are actually “about” 4000×.
Images marked 60x are closer to 400x
Images marked 150x are closer to 1000x
Images marked 600x are closer to 4000x
Images marked 1500x are closer to 10,000x
