Observation 18355: Xeromphalina Kühner & Maire

When: 2008-12-06

Collection location: Albion, California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Douglas Smith (douglas)

No specimen available

Found in redwood, and D. fir needle duff.

Some unknown Xeromphalina that I have been finding for a few years up in the Mendocino area now. I put this under the scope last year, and it has amyloid small ellipsiod smooth spores. The funny character of these, as a Xeromphalina, is that the gills are notched, not decurrent. Not extremely common, but a couple seem to be found it each year up there (if people are inspired to look for these little guys…).
