Description

I collected this from under Douglas-Fir (no pine or oak in the area).

Pileus: Broadly convex – plano-convex, with small, flattish universal veil remnants, medium-light tan-brown coloration (no yellow or orange tones), and a non-striate margin.

STIPE: 110 mm tall, 13.5 mm thick at base, 8.4 mm thick at apex, glabrous, firm, solid but for a small-diameter central cylinder stuffed with a pith.

PARTIAL VEIL: small, median-superior, sheathing upward, fairly persistent, with small distinct patches at the margin.

With PURPLE STAINS on one side of a cut through the stipe after overnight storage. I would say that this is a one-time idiosyncratic reaction, but I collected a similar specimen two years ago (near Douglas-Fir and Oak) that had the same purple-blue tones on the stipe when just-picked. (Photos to come if I can find them).

still obvious after drying

VOLVA: Short, even, non-appressed collar, not particularly swollen or rooting.

Cells of sterile margin: Clavate to weakly capitate.

BASIDIA: NO CLAMPS OBSERVED, after searching for 30 minutes using 1000x on a squash mount stained with congo red and phloxine and cleared with KOH.

The spores were ellipsoid, with Q = 1.57 (no truncation) 1.6 (rounded for significant figures).
