Observation 50614: Crepidotus cesatii (Radenh.) Sacc.

When: 2010-08-09

Collection location: Lainzer Tiergarten, Wien, Austria [Click for map]

Who: Douglas Smith (douglas)

Specimen available

Under mixed hardwood forests, mostly oak and beech.

Very small on thin twigs, non-hygrophanous and non-viscid, lightly fibrous non-pigmented surface. Probably C. cessati, but need to check the spores.

Adding some micro-details.

The micro-shot is of a gill face at 1000x in KOH. Here the spores are tan, ellipsoid, and spiny, with no germ pore.

With the white, fuzzy, non-viscid cap, and non-hygrophanous, this is enough to make this id as C. cesatii. (Which wasn’t much of a surprise.)
