Observation 64760: Hebeloma (Fr.) P. Kumm.

When: 2011-03-25

Collection location: San Rafael, Marin Co., California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Ron Pastorino (Ronpast)

Specimen available

These were growing near some planted trees that I didn’t identify.
The caps were up to 5 cm across, somewhat viscid and fairly water-logged.
The spore print was a reddish brown and the spores were pretty rough, measuring ~ 10.9-12.0 X 6.8-7.7 microns.
The gills were broadly notched and relatively thin.
Didn’t detect any strong or distinctive odor.
Looked for Cheilocystidia on a couple of gill edges but the only thing found was a very few smallish things that may be basidoles (see last photo)
They look like Hebelomas of some sort that, because of age and/or weather conditions, have lost their Cheilocystidia.
