Observation 28501: Psathyrella candolleana (Fr.) Maire

When: 2009-11-17

Collection location: Annadel State Park, Sonoma Co., Santa Rosa, California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Ron Pastorino (Ronpast)

No specimen available

These had purplish spores averaging about 9.0 X 5.2 microns. They didn’t seem to be particularly hygrophanous. The caps were up to 4.2 cm across and the gills adnexed. Some of the cap edges had veil remnants but the stipes were fairly clean to slightly scruffy. The stipe was narrowly hollow.
Most appeared to be growing on the ground but a couple of groups seemed to be growing on very old wood.
I suppose Psathyrella would be a likely genus but I’ll leave it more open for the time being.
