owners/operators of MycoKey. Their Ecuador section previously hosted several hundred more images which, when they were still browsable, served as an indispensible resource to making sense out of my first finds in Latin America.

just followed your link, Danny, and Wow!

the reduction of FB material to lamellae and little else is rather diagnostic for C. quitensis. This has enough pileus to suggest that it’s something else.

But I really appreciate you going through 75 pages of MO activity to try to help ID this mushroom. When I saw it I knew it was something I had never seen before, though I can say that about half the mushrooms I saw in Veracruz. I remember where the log this grew on was and I’ll definitely spend a few days here next year. This place is really cool – lots of plant and mushroom diversity, and it is right across the street from where Gaston Guzman works.

Specimen rotted before I could scope it because we found a large number of interesting collections the next day. I will attempt to recollect next year.

of Crepidotus quitensis (http://www.mycokey.com/Ecuador/album/slides/TL-8213.html), though with considerably more pilus and stipe. I remember coming across photos of a tiny, tropical, resupinate Russulaceae as well. I’ll try to dig up more info.

Any chance of microscopy?
