Notes:
Growing on the underside of a decorticated chunk of Platanus occidentalis wood. The only ectomycorrhizal hardwood in the area was Populus deltoides but I’m not sure if there were any in the immediate vicinity. Growing on a chunk of decorticated Platanus occidentalis wood near that species, Ulmus sp., Fraxinus sp., Acer negundo and Aesculus sp. Populus deltoides was the only potential ECM tree in the area but I didn’t notice any in the immediate vicinity. All structures inamyloid. Monomitic with clamped generative hyphae. Hyphae without oily contents. Basidia urnifom and at least 6-sterigmate. Spores smooth. Spore measurements from Piximetre: (5) 5.2 – 5.5 (6) × (2.8) 2.9 – 3.3 (4) µm, Q = (1.4) 1.6 – 1.8; N = 7, Me = 5.4 × 3.2 µm; Qe = 1.7
Individual spores: 6.04 × 3.33 µm, 4.96 × 2.79 µm, 5.43 × 3.05 µm, 5.55 × 4.02 µm, 5.34 × 3.25 µm, 5.22 × 2.88 µm, 5.27 × 3.19 µm
