Observation 341384: Hypholoma (Fr.) P. Kumm.

When: 2018-10-14

Collection location: Ricketts Glen State Park, Pennsylvania, USA [Click for map]

Who: Dave W (Dave W)

No specimen available

Thought these little wood-inhabiting mushroom represented a species of Hypholoma. Thin spore print color was kinda ambiguous, brown but lacking in dark purplish tint. Spores in KOH were reddish-brown (color in 4th photo is accurate), and at 400x they looked to be thick-walled with a few positioned to show what may be a plage, pointing toward Galerina.

reject the “Galerina” idea. I must admit, although I am careful to keep track of what I’m examining, given the large number of collections brought in during this WVMC foray, I may have mistaken the spore sample for different a collection.

Really does seem to look like a Hypholoma.

Thanks all for the input.

The cortinaceous PV reminds me of that seen in very young Hypholoma, e.g. obs 287363.

Jacob, do you think…

these are not Galerina? I see criteria both for and against.
