Observation 57155: Agaricales sensu lato

I tried hard with my limited skills to ID this to genus. Spore print is pinkish (tan?, light brown?), but the spores are definitely smooth. Hilar appendage can be seen in many. Spore shape is roughly elliptic, but is not constant. Basidia look large, with long sterigmata. Basidia and cystidia are clavate. Spores collapsed in KOH after an hour.

OK, Rhodocybe is out

Thanks again, Douglas. I have a spore print and will dry the mushrooms. When I get a chance, I’ll provide a microshot. Sorry, I cannot draw well. (I bought a scope with a camera, but broke the CD in transport and haven’t found time to ask for a new one.)

Yes, but…

Rhodocybe shouldn’t have smooth spores, they aren’t really warted, so much as bumpy. There should be some examples around.

It might help to supply photos/drawings of the micro-details you are getting here.

Judy Roger looked at this and she can add: (1) spores oval, inequilateral because of plage; (2) cap surface a palisade layer.

Thanks to Douglas for hints.

In the meantime, I got another hint: Rhodocybe.

Maybe Rhodocollybia, or with the kinda decurrent gills a Lepista.
