Who: Linas Kudzma (baravykas)

Specimen available

Notes:
Inocybe sp. growing from the ground in scattered clusters under a Beech tree. They seemed to be clearly associated with this one tree. Orange-tan caps have fibrous margins and most were 2-3 cm in diameter. Spores are smooth and ellipsoid to elongate, many with one large oil droplet inside. The 20 spore average was 8.0 × 4.3 microns, Qm = 1.85. Long pointy metuloid pleurocystidia are very abundant, encrusted and turn strongly yellow in 10% KOH in glycerol/water (1:10).
