Observation 363562: Glutinoglossum

Notes:
Extremely viscid black earth tongue observed beneath Western red cedar and big leaf maple today at Burfoot Park Olympia, WA, USA. Harvesting it reminded me of teasing out young Gliophorus from the duff for harvest. Approximately 2.5cm tall. Harvested a specimen for home herbarium and drying on a glass slide for spore print and subsequent microscopy(images of microscopy/spores to be added to this observation).

Lighter centered specimen on left(post harvest) has a lighter brown hue to center where squeezed during harvest, as it was unusually slick/viscid(as opposed to Geoglossum and Trichoglossum I have worked with in the past).

MICROSCOPY PERFORMED: Multiple images of microscopy after spore print obtained the night of 4/13/19. Spores all are curved, 3-7 septa. Could not obtain images of Paraphyses but am confident with the given information from my microscopy(albeit crude) and field-marks(extremely viscid, brown centere...

G glutinosum is described as having almost all spores with 7 septa. Others in the group have all 3 or 7 and others a mixture of 0 to 7. The paraphyses details would be needed.
