Pluteus observed in the Mangemangeroa Reserve - Pluteus sp. (cf. thomsonii)

From http://www.mushroomexpert.com/pluteus_thomsonii.html:

Pluteus thomsonii is a small, brown-capped species of Pluteus with a cap surface that often becomes elaborately veined. Under the microscope, its cheilocystidia are "rostrate" (featuring a single, finger-like to beak-like apical projection).

Description: The cap of this small Pluteus is pink-tan in colour with distinctive wrinkles in raised ridges in the centre of the cap. It grows up to 2.5 cm in diameter. The gills are cream-pink. The stipe is cream in colour and it has a light powdery covering. Microscopically the cheilocystidia are rostrate with a single projection of varying length and the cap cells are distinctive.

This species can be distinguished in the field in the Mangemangeroa Reserve - as it is the only small species with the distinctive wrinkling associated with 'Celluloderma' species of Pluteus that grows on wood and has a pruinose stipe.

Abundance: Occasionally observed in the Mangemangeroa Reserve.
