This observation refers to a species of Hebeloma that can be found in typical mediterranean habitats, dominated by Quercus trees, particularly Q. suber is ever present, where some disperse pines and/or eucalyptus can be present and many shrubs (including Q. coccifera, Arbutus unedo and several others). In this particular observation, the specimens were located at the interface of the ancient forest with some fields now used for agricultural purposes.
According to the references, H. cavipes is a member of section Denudata, subsection Clepsydroida. Quoting from Ref. 1: “The main morphological features that distinguish species of H. subsect. Clepsydroida are the shape of the cheilocystidium, significantly swollen at
the apex and also swollen in the bottom half, but more slender in the median area giving the cheilocystidia an hourglass appearance and often with some median thickening; and the spores with a majority that are distinctly ornamented (O3) and with the perispore somewhat loosening to distinctly loosening in few to many spores (P1,P2) and distinctly dextrinoid to strongly dextrinoid (D2,D3)”.
