Observation 302917: Clitocybe sensu lato

Notes:
Growing abundantly in hardwood leaf litter. Odor and taste farinose. Odor of dried specimens somewhat sweet — almost candy cap like. Did not notice swollen vesicles or pileocystidia in the pileipellis. Only found simple-septate hyphae in the pileipellis. Filiform cheilocystidia present but rare. At least some basidia 2-sterigmate. Spores smooth and inamyloid. Spore measurements from Piximetre: (6.2) 6.8 – 9 (9.1) × (2.9) 3 – 3.5 (3.6) µm, Q = (2) 2.1 – 2.7 (3) ; N = 14, Me = 7.8 × 3.2 µm ; Qe = 2.4
Individual spores: 7.66 × 3.21 µm, 9.08 × 2.98 µm, 8.97 × 3.38 µm, 8.77 × 3.57 µm, 8.10 × 3.17 µm, 7.21 × 3.26 µm, 7.24 × 3.17 µm, 6.83 × 3.47 µm, 6.21 × 2.98 µm, 7.71 × 3.09 µm, 7.22 × 2.93 µm, 8.17 × 3.18 µm, 7.83 × 3.32 µm, 7.77 × 3.40 µm
