No specimen available

Some unknown Inocybe here. Found in an irrigated lawn, amongst the grass. They were near enough to some oak trees, but only found in the grass, not right next to the trees.

The microscopic shots were mounted in Meltzer’s reagent. The first shot is at 400x, and the scale is 2.5 microns per division. The second shot is at 1000x with oil immersion, and the scale is 1 micron per division.

The first shot shows some pleurocystidia, here they are pointed and incrusted. The second shot shows the nodulose spores of this Inocybe.
