Observation 5857: Galerina clavata (Velen.) Kuhner

When: 2007-12-31

Collection location: Los Trancos Preserve, Palo Alto, California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Douglas Smith (douglas)

No specimen available

Back to Smith and Singer again, after seeing that these do have a veil, but a very light cobwebby one. If there is a veil, there is another species that also better matches the roughness of the spores. So, I moving these observations now to G. borealis, instead of G. tibiicystis. Although G. tibbicystis is seen all over the world, and is kinda common; and G. borealis has only be examined once, as the type in the Mich herbarium.

But it is the best match in the Smith and Singer monograph, so until these get compared to the type, I’ll call them this (for now…).
