Observation 35083: Prunulus purus (Pers.) Murrill

When: 2010-03-23

Collection location: Samuel P. Taylor State Park, Marin Co., California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Ron Pastorino (Ronpast)

No specimen available

Initially these did not appear to be Prunulus purus because the cap seemed to lack obvious lilac shades or striations and I did not detect any strong odor of radish. However, a workup pretty much indicated this highly variable species.
The spores were white and weakly amyloid,smooth, measuring about 6.5-8.8 X 3.5-4.7 microns.
There were some lilac tints on the gills and more obviously on the stipe.
There seemed to be two types of cystidia on the gills.The cheilocystia was more clavate while the pleurocystidia was more elongated, (see photos).
