Collection location: Hunlock Creek, Pennsylvania, USA [Click for map]

Who: Dave W (Dave W)

Specimen available

Clinging to woody debris/litter underneath recently fallen leaves. Mature shagbark hickory a few feet away.

Numerous cystidia on the gills, tapered at the apices, mainly capitate with small head ~3 microns wide.

Spores 8-9.5 × 3.5-4.

Stipes are kinda thick and pale for R. pyrrhocephalus. So I’m wondering if this may be a species other than pyrrhocephalus.
