Observation 10299: Pluteus flavofuligineus G.F. Atk.

When: 2008-08-31

Collection location: Perrot State Park, Trempealeau Co., Wisconsin, USA [Click for map]

Who: Tom Volk (TomVolk)

Specimen available

Weird, large Pluteus, with long stem. Growing on very rotten hardwood, probably aspen. No horns on cystidia. Can’t get it to key to any species— may be near P. rugosodisca, but the size is way off. Anyone know?

Sorry for the crappy microscopic images— I didn’t realize how dirty the microscope lenses were until I downloaded the pictures today.

and to answer your anticipated question— no, Perrot State Park, located on the MIssissippi River, is not named after H. Ross Perot…

[admin – Sat Aug 14 02:04:32 +0000 2010]: Changed location name from ‘Perrot State Park, Trempeauleau County, Trempeauleau, WI’ to ‘Perrot State Park, Trempealeau Co., Wisconsin, USA
