Observation 86508: Tubaria (W.G. Sm.) Gillet

When: 2012-01-17

Collection location: Kahite Trail, Vonore, Tennessee, USA [Click for map]

35.0° 84.0°

Who: Christine Braaten (wintersbefore)

No specimen available

Habitat: On roadside gravel (the grey gravel that’s in the picture). These were growing in clusters in a disturbed area where gravel had been laid down, they were comming up through the gravel, I don’t know the nature of the substrait under the gravel, but because there were several fruitbodies of Pisolithus (an ectomycorrhizal associate) in the same gravel bed, I might not rule out ECM.
Spore print: Medium brown (maybe “raw sienna”)
Spore morphology/Microscopic characters: Smooth, thick walled, pigmented, No Germ Pore, lots of “bowling pin shaped cystidia” (I think thats called fusiform)…spores were inamyloid
