Brief Description: [See More | Edit]

Hygrophorus fulvosiformis (Murr.) Murr.
Lloydia 5: 156. 1942
Camarophyllus fulvosiformis Murr., Lloydia 5: 136. 1942.

Pileus 3-4 em broad, convex to expanded, turbinate, pallid to
avellaneous-isabelline, glabrous, dry, margin even. Context thin, white;
odor fragrant, taste mild.

Lamellae long-decurrent, white, rather narrow, distant to subdistant,

inserted, intervenose, edges even.

Stipe 4-6 em long, 4-7 mm thick, white, shining, glabrous, equal or
slightly enlarged upward, becoming somewhat hollow.

Spores (5) 6-7 (9) X 4.5-5.5 fJ-, ellipsoid to ovoid, smooth, nonamyloid.

Basidia 36-54 X 6-8.5 }l, 2- and 4-spored. Pleurocystidia and
cheilocystidia none. Gill trama of interwoven hyphae. Cuticle of nongelatinous,
repent hyphae which are radially arranged, 2-8 }l broad,
brownish, with more or less erect free ends forming a type of trichodermium.
No hypodermium differentiated. Pileus trama of radial
hyphae, with scattered lactifers. Clamp connections present on the
cuticular hyphae.

HABIT, HABITAT, AND DISTRIBUTION-In leaf mold in a climax hammock,
Florida, January.

MATERIAL STUDIEI>-FLORIDA: Murrill & Watson F20129 (type,
southwest of Gainesville, Jan. 21, 1940).
OBSERVATIoNs-In the dried condition the carpophores somewhat resemble H. virgineus. Murrill says that when fresh it suggests H. fulvosus (H. pratensis) but has a more slender stipe. It also has a fragrant odor.

The description of microscopic characters given above is based on
our study of Murrill’s type.
