This is Buck McAdoo’s collection. His notes follow.
“The specimens were found scattered in a mossy lawn in Bow Cemetery south of Bellingham, Wash. on October 13, 2000. Norway spruce was nearby.
Caps – 7-20 mm wide, convex to nearly plane with wavy, irregular margins in age. Broad, obtuse umbo. Margins grooved. Pale tawny-brown becoming pale tan-brown towards margin. There is a cinnamon edge at the margin edge.
Gills – Adnexed, white with cinnamon-brown emarginated edges. Thickish, subdistant, edges entire. Minutely intervenose. Gills and context turn pink when dried.
Stipe – 1-4 mm thick and 4-6 cm long. Equal, hollow, glabrous, often flattened or grooved near base. Pallid flesh-tan becoming sparsely white strigose at base.
Odor & Taste – Mild.
Spores – White, amyloid."
Spores 8-10 × 4.5-5.5. Basidia 4-spored, (21-27)+5 x (6-7.5). Cheilocystidia 31-37 × 6-10. Caulocystidia 35-40 × 6-11. No pleurocystidia. Pileipellis a tangled/coralloid mass. Spores amyloid, trama dextrinoid. Clamps absent (or invisible to me).
Acuminate cystidia speak strongly for M. sanguinolenta and all other microscopy except clamplessness and lack of lactifers (in my sample) matches as well.
