Observation 20907: Entoloma Fr. ex P. Kumm.

When: 2009-05-02

Collection location: Fields Creek, John Day, Grant Co., Oregon, USA [Click for map]

Who: Jason Hollinger (jason)

Specimen available

Found in very moist microhabitat in deep shady gorge along Fields Creek, in moss, possibly associated with very rotten wood debris.

Oops, I mixed up my notes with another mushroom. This seems to have clear spores (spore print failed but presumably white or very pale), and the fruiting body is not hygrophanous as I originally stated. Caps are up to 3 cm wide. No odor or taste. Clear liquid only when squeezing the base of the stipe.

Spores are angular from all sides, about 9-11 × 6.5-8.5 µm, colorless. Pileipellis is a parallelocutis (definitely not tangled). At least some clamps present. According to “How to Identify Mushrooms to Genus VI:Modern Genera” this makes it Entoloma for sure.


Spores, in water, at 1000×.
