Oooh… now we’re talkin’

There we go, the whole stipe, and some gills. If these were on D. fir bark, I would say that they look a lot like what I’ve been calling G. sahleri. Tiny guys, with calyptrate spores. Which is a fine id, in the fact that it matches the description just fine, but also matches descriptions for G. calyptrospora, so who knows? At least they are different from the G. calyptrata I found here in France.

Anyway, since these are on Bishop pine, I don’t know. Maybe that species also grows on B. pine, but so far I’ve only found it on D. fir (moss covered bark…). It’d be nice to see the spores… like I don’t ask for much.

Need more…

For these obs. of Galerina you need to get a shot of the whole stipe down to the base, along with a shot of the gills. Just a photo of the top of the cap doesn’t really tell you much in Galerina, other than that it is probably a Galerina.
