Observation 99048: Clitocybula (Singer) Singer ex Métrod

I originally thought this might be Mycena overholtzii but in additon to the snow having been gone for well over a month, there were several other features that didn’t seem right.

The pictures that I looked at in MatchMaker for C. familia seemed very similar but was bothered by the spores of my collection being smaller.

Spores were mostly sub-globos to globos and less often somewhat tear shaped.
Size was (4)5-6(6.5) x 4-5(6). The sterigmata on some of the basidia were quite long, in the neighborhood of 5mu. Also there were occasionally structures near the basidia that were no longer than the basidia but were cylingrical, sometimes flexuous and narrow (2-3mu).

Trees in the area were mostly Grand Fir mixed with some Lodgepole or Ponderosa Pine.

Specimens at least for the present will reside at my residence.
