Notes:
Paula (longtooth) had collected this before in previous trips to Forest Park. She knew exactly where to find more. Though somewhat frozen, the material was in more than good enough shape to photograph, re-collect, scope and preserve. note tiny rhizomorph at base.

basidia four-spored; some globose/inflated elements present; spores strongly apiculate, thick-walled and ridged.

Spores:

(12.2) 12.5 – 16.5 (18.4) × (7.4) 7.6 – 9.1 (11.1) µm
Q = (1.3) 1.5 – 2 (2.1) ; N = 40
Me = 14.5 × 8.5 µm ; Qe = 1.7
