Observation 5359: Phyllotopsis nidulans (Pers.) Singer

When: 2007-12-08

Collection location: Novato, California, USA [Click for map]

Who: John Kirkpatrick (natashadak)

No specimen available

Notes:
I got a very faint whitish(?) print. The spores are tiny – I’m guessing 2-3 microns (sorry, no reticule) – smooth, oval.

Arora suggests lentinus, marasmius(?), omphalotus, pleurotus, claudopus, phyllotopsis, rhodotus, crepidotus or paxillus for gilled mushrooms with “stalk consistently off-center, lateral, or absent …”. None of those seem to fit.

I should have looked at Mykoweb

The color and tomentose cape are distinctive for Phyllotopsis nidulans. If you have the collection, smell it…you won’t forget it!
