Observation 44724: Nolanea (Fr.) P. Kumm.

When: 2010-04-23

Collection location: Bolinas Ridge, Marin Co., California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Ron Pastorino (Ronpast)

No specimen available

These were growing on the ground near Douglas fir, with caps ranging from 6-8cm across. The cap color fades with age.
The gills appeared almost free.
The stipe was mostly hollow and longitudinally striate. Lots of white cottony material at the base.
The spore print was pink and the spores were approx. 11.0-14.0 X 8.2-10.1 microns, basically 5 sided.
Could not find any cystidia on the gills and did not detect any strong odor.
The closest match seemed to be Nolanea stricta although the spores seem a little too large and I’m not sure about the spore shape for N. stricta.
Without Largent’s tome it’s difficult to get much further than genus for these, and that wont appease the Entoloma advocates.
