Observation 51490: Hebeloma (Fr.) P. Kumm.

When: 2010-08-12

Collection location: Fraser Experimental Forest, Grand Co., Colorado, USA [Click for map]

Who: Ron Pastorino (Ronpast)

No specimen available

Notes:
Initially someone at the NAMA 50th Foray in Colorado identified these as Hebeloma populinum, but later it was changed to Hebeloma sp.
The spores were ~ 10.0-11.2(12.0) X 5.2-6.5 microns.
There seemed to be some resemblance to Hebeloma sinapizans but the base of the stipe was definitely not swollen and the cap color was perhaps too pale.

but Vera was certainly part of the “faculty”.
These were vouchered so maybe a name will show up in the final tally.

Did you show these to Vera?

Were these shown to Vera? She is probably the best Hebeloma expert in the US at this point. (There is a dubious title…)
