Found under spruce.
This seems to be the best id from the Vesterholt Hebeloma book, given the spruce habitat. These are fairly yellow, and they should be a lighter pale tan, but he remarks that these turn yellow-brown as they age. These were the only ones left from the large grouping, where the rest had turned into a nice brown-black goop in age.
They had a nice odor of radishes, really strong.
The first microshot is of the gill edge at 400x in Meltzer’s. Here the cheilocystidia can be seen, and they are mostly cylindrical with a enlarged end.
The second microshot is of spores at 1000x in Meltzer’s. Here the spores here the spores are ellipsoid and pointed (subamygliform), and with a roughened surface. Here the spores look non-dextrinoid, although the discription of the species should be dextrinoid, but I’m not sure how strongly, he mentions some species as weakly dextrinoid, and others as strongly dextrinoid. I don’t see much of a red-brown in the spores here.
