One of the maze of Glaucopoid Phlegmacia in California

Good call. This is one of the complex of Glaucopoid Phlegmacia in California that could span several closely related species. The jigsaw puzzle of these is being worked slowly and you guys provide pieces of it too with every quality observation – thank you. The spores should be small, rather ellipsoid — in the 6.5 to 9µ length. If not then I would be surprised (pleasantly)… We have one that has small spores, but they are limoniform – we need quality spore work with these too. Richard, please save the material and thank you for having done so in the past.

Nice documentation…looks like what Mushroomhobby lists as C. glaucopus sensu Californian authors
