Tubaria sp?

Please try to include photos to show all parts of the fungus, eg top, stem, and gills.
Note any smells, and associated trees or plants (eg oak, birch). A spore print can be very useful.

Tubaria sp?

Post by adampembs » Mon Oct 22, 2018 6:02 pm

7mm cap diameter growing on well rotted wood. Chestnut brown spore print.
Spores are more ellipsoid and match T.furfuracea but veil covers entire cap and cheilocystidia look more like T. conspersa.
Pileipellis a trichoderm.
Which is it or do you think its something else?

Hello Adam,

not necessarily.
But you need to check a) the Pleurocystidia: obtuse or acute apex and b) the gill edge wether there are only clavate to spheropedunculate cystidia or wether there are pleurocystidoid cheilocystidia too. It would also be important to check the spore size average if it is < 8 µm or > 8 µm, as this is an often used differenciating character.

What do you mean with "pileipellis is a trichoderm"? May be you have seen the veil? Psathyrella has a hymeniderm.

best regards,
Andreas
