Observation 49281: Tapinella panuoides (Batsch) E.-J. Gilbert

When: 2010-07-20

Collection location: Seven Mile Lake Trail, Forest Co., Wisconsin, USA [Click for map]

Who: Steve Nelsen (sfnelsen)

No specimen available

This is in older books as Paxillus corrugatus. The one I brought back was 6 cm wide x 4 cm deep. Spores yellowish, eliptical, small, about 4 microns long.
I am amused that the M.O. “correct” name is Pseudomerulius (published in 1985), when there is a later published name, Meiorganum curtisii (Berk.) Singer, J. García & L.D. Gómez 1990. Index fungorum does list it as the “current name”, naturally with no explaination of why they chose to ignore Singer’s name, which they know exists. Interesting.

These look more like a Tapinella panuoides, with the wavyness of the gill reaching further down the cap. In the few cases of Pseudomerulius curtisii I saw (which ain’t much…), the gills were more orange, and showed splitting of each main gill into two towards the margin. Here the gills are singular to the margin, with sub-gills showing up as they widen apart.
