Observation 162080: Entoloma Fr. ex P. Kumm.

Mature specimen drying. May be Cortinarius…? Spore Brown, Cap medium large, 10cm, Stipe 12cm with white base area becoming slightly bulbous. 2nd smaller specimen found nearby too mature and smaller than fungi shown. Colouring of both identical. Gills deep and tending to be loose. Not sure if specimen will dry properly. Still waiting on dryer to arrive.. GGrrrr.


This image is not sharp but was taken and loaded as a record of Gill colour and structure. Rain and wind at the time image taken.

Christian, you are most welcome to the specimen if it survives.. At the moment I have doubts about how it is drying. I have a dryer coming and hope it arrives today. Anytime you would like a specimen and it is available you just ask, No Problemo!. I think I will try and scope a section today in the meantime.. I have several unusual specimens that just will not keep. Hope the dryer helps with the situation. Not always successful with micrographs unfortunately. Self taught, and it has been a steep learning curve with only MO members for advice. Will email you if micrographs have been loaded. Chow, kk

I’d love to have this specimen once it is dry.
I think it might be an Entoloma. There are a
number that look like this. Please let me know if you’d
be interested in sending it. Genevieve Gates may know what it is.
