Pluteus observed in the Mangemangeroa Reserve - Pluteus hispidilacteus

Horak describes the cap of Pluteus hispidilacteus as small, 5-12 mm and conspicuously covered in white hairs.

Description: This small cream-white Pluteus has non-pigmented fibrils lying flattish on the cap surface. It has been observed growing up to 1.2 cm in diameter. The gills are cream-pink with a concolorous gill edge. The stipe is white-cream to pale yellow. Microscopically the most distinctive character is the non-pigmented pileipellis cap cells which are like fine 'hairs' on the cap surface.

Abundance: Rarely observed in the Mangemangeroa Reserve.
