Observation 234521: Parasola auricoma (Pat.) Redhead, Vilgalys & Hopple

Occurring on fairly new woodchips; this fits the photos on Mykoweb (and California Mushrooms) well, and it keys right to it in Funga Nordica because of the long sclerocystidia on the pileus surface and the spore size and shape.


Spores at 400X
Long sclerocystidia on pileus surface
White gill edge with some obvious cheilocystidia. I did not see a description of the Cheilocystida for this species in Funga Nordica.
