Observation 15962: Tubaria (W.G. Sm.) Gillet

When: 2009-01-01

Collection location: Bon Tempe Reservoir, Marin Co., California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Ron Pastorino (Ronpast)

Specimen available

Notes:
These were small (caps up to 1.85cm across) and growing most likely on a fallen live oak twig. The caps were fairly viscid and the gills were adnate , close to subdistant and similar but lighter in color to the cap. The rusty brown spores were about 5.5 X 4.5 microns, almost round and a sizable (plage?). No ring or annulus fragments noted on any of them.
Galerina or I suppose Tubaria are possibilities.

Spores all collapsed

How do you prepare the spores and get the photo there? All the spores are collapsed, I’m wondering if that is an artifact on how you prepare the slide, or a quality of the spores.
