Observation 50628: Pluteus cervinus (Schaeff.) P. Kumm.

When: 2010-08-09

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

Who: Douglas Smith (douglas)

No specimen available

Under mixed hardwood forests, mostly oak and beech.

Adding some micro-details.

The first micro-shot is of the cap surface at 400x in KOH. The cap is a cutis, with no gelatin or pileocystidia. Also there were no clamp con. obs. in the cap surface hyphae.

The second micro-shot is of the gill edge at 400x in KOH. The cystidia can be seen here, and they are thick walled, with hooks on the ends. Similar pleurocystidia were obs., and were numerous.

The third micro-shot is of spores from the gill at 1000x in KOH. The spores are ellipsoid to sub-globose, smooth, without a germ pore. They are apr. 7 × 6-5 um in size.

This all pretty much clearly points at P. cervinus, so not that hard for this one.
