Who: Douglas Smith (douglas)

Specimen available

Found under mixed hardwoods, mostly oak and beech

Adding some micro-details:

The first micro-shot is of the gill edge at 400x in KOH. The cheilocystidia here are broadly lageniform and thin walled. The pleurocystidia were similar.

The second micro-shot is of the cap surface at 400x in KOH. The cap surface is a cutis, and filled with surface spores it seems.

The third shot is of spores from the gill at 1000x in KOH. The spores are subglobose and smooth. Apr. 7 × 6 um in size.

Putting this together it seems that these are P. exiguus, and pretty old ones at that.
