Observation 46152: Entoloma sinuatum (Bull.) P. Kumm.

When: 2010-05-23

Collection location: St. Genis, France [Click for map]

Who: Douglas Smith (douglas)

Specimen available

Found under oak in a grassy area. Willow and spruce weren’t too far away…

Looked at a gill under the scope.

The first micro-shot is of the gill edge at 400x in KOH. The thin cylindrical/filiform cystidia can be seen there.

The second micro-shot is of spores from the gill at 1000x in KOH. Here the spores are sub-globose and angular, apr. 9-10um long.

Looking in the Champions du Suisse tome 4 (Or the Fungi or Switzerland vol. 4, if you like), this kinda drops out as Entoloma sinuatum.
