Pluteus observed in the Mangemangeroa Reserve - Pluteus Sect. Celluloderma on wood (cf. terricola)

Horak’ describes Pluteus terricola from soil.

I have observed two species with a pileipellis of subglobse to ellipsoid cells however they differ in appearance in the field, in substrate preference and in microscopic features. This species which is found on wood more closely matches the described Pluteus terricola but it is unlikely that it is this species.

Description: The cap of this species is a uniform rich-brown colour with a slightly raised centre and with wrinkling in raised ridges over the cap surface. It grows on wood and can be up to 2.5 cm in diameter. The gills are cream-pink with a concolorous gill margin. The stipe is cream with tan hints.

Abundance: Occasionally observed in the Mangemangeroa Reserve.
