Observation 82845: Laccaria laccata group

When: 2011-11-18

Collection location: Hunlock Creek, Pennsylvania, USA [Click for map]

Who: Dave W (Dave W)

No specimen available

Although I’ve been calling this type (annually common along paths on my property) “laccata”, they do look an awful lot like photos of L. bicolor that I’ve seen… except that the basal tomentum on my collections seems to be always white. I have not seen the lilac tinge. Little bit of color seen on tomentum in the one photo posted here is just the growun color of the stipe showing through a bit.

I think the micro photos may show cystidia. If so, then they appear to be scarce in the specimen I examined. I did not mount the gill edge in any solution.
