Observation 81654: Pluteus plautus group

When: 2011-07-15

Collection location: Akademgorodok, Novosibirsk, Russia [Click for map]

Who: Tatiana Bulyonkova (ressaure)

Specimen available

Just to illustrate the contrast with the unidentified tan Pluteus which grew in the same spot on rotting poplar logs. These look like typical P. plautus, rather small and thin-fleshed – 25 to 35 mm in diameter, with short, thin stipe.


The terminal elements are noticeably smaller, less pigmented and arranged in more compact bunches than those of the unidentified Pluteus sect. Hispidoderma
Cheilocystidia. No scale yet, just to give the basic idea. They’re very similar to the cheilocystidia of the mystery Pluteus but generally smaller. I’ll do the measurements as soon as I find some time to make a less hectic micro-session.

Yes, this is also something in the Pluteus plautus group. It looks different from your other observation but it is difficult to be sure if they are actually the same or two different things.
