what I think is I. caesariata in many spots this year. I have no DNA supporting caesariata, but it sure looks like it based on micro and comparing to published photos. I’ll post an observation later this week.

Samples always welcome ….

Thanks for the reply and offer. Anytime you find Inocybes and/or Entolomas that are in good shape I’d always be interested if you can dry them. Your photos are always excellent, so a good photo record is assured. These are the two groups I am researching more seriously and I would gladly send you my photomicro to add to your observations.

I’m also slowly getting DNA data on interesting collections.


Thanks for the species suggestion, Linas.

This one with the stellate (nodulose) spores has appeared on my lawn for each of the past few years, but generally only one or two at a time. I’ll check after the next rainfall.

Right now, there’s a lot of scaly Inocybes fruting in my area, perhaps I. caesariata. Unfortunately, a collection I recently made and will soon post has just found its way into the compost. But if you are interested in a collection of these, I can stop by one spot on Wednesday.

Samples always welcome ….

Dave, anytime you have a good multi specimen collection of Inocybe with excellent pictures, do not hesitate to send me a sample if you have time.

Looks close to my Obs 106492 …
