Observation 62101: Clitocybe (Fr.) Staude

When: 2011-01-07

Collection location: Rockville Hills Regional Park, Solano Co., California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Ron Pastorino (Ronpast)

Specimen available

These were growing by the side of a trail with some Oaks and other hardwoods fairly close by.
The caps were up to 5.7 cm across and somewhat hygrophanous.
The stems were distinctive with interesting grooves.
No strong odor or taste.
The spore print was also distinctive, being colored a light orange.
The spores seemed smooth, measuring ~ 6.3-7.0 X 3.9-4.6 microns. Without Melzers, I don’t know if they were amyloid.
At this point, I’m guessing Clitocybe but couldn’t find a match in that genus.
