Well, actually no, I didn’t id this one. It was brought in by other people at a meeting, and they put the name on it. I do believe that one person but the spores under the scope. I had said I think it was a Phaeocollybia, and they weren’t sure, but under the scope the spores were correct for Phaeocollybia. So, I am certain of the genus. They put the species name on it, and I was very new to Europe, so I didn’t know the species that you find here, I just trusted others on the name. Actually I still haven’t seen many Phaeocollybia here.

Are you sure?

Your photo shows Fruitbodies with thin stipes but I know Ph. lugubris with bigger stipes and brownish caps. Just have a look to observation no. 22993.
