Observation 84166: Mucronella bresadolae (Quél.) Corner

When: 2011-12-04

Collection location: Sunset Rest Area, Highway 26, Clatsop Co., Oregon, USA [Click for map]

Who: Sava Krstic (sava)

Specimen available

Found near Sunset Highway rest area. Growing on rotten conifer stump, spines pointing downwards.

Spores (from crush mount) 8-10 × 5-6 microns. I measured larger sopres and they are much longer than in descriptions of M. bresadolae. I wonder if the spores I measured were of something else that contaminated this collection.

Basidia 4-spored, one measured 25 × 8 microns.


1 cm between dots printed on the paper.
