Pluteus observed in the Mangemangeroa Reserve - Pluteus sp. ‘Lepiota-like’

Microscopically the pileipellis terminal cells of this species are similar to Pluteus hispidilacteus. It differs in that the fruit bodies are larger and may be found growing on both soil and wood and the terminal pileipellis cells are pigmented.

Description: This small Pluteus has a cap that is convex becoming flat and may have a small depression in the centre with raised dark black-brown fibrils over a lighter coloured cap. It has been observed growing up to 2.5 cm in diameter. The gills are cream-pink with a concolorous gill edge. The stipe is cream-grey.

Abundance: Rarely observed in the Mangemangeroa Reserve.
