Description

Small Pluteus on soil. Cap dark fibres raised into scales over light tan cap, 1.8 cm diam. x 2 cm height. Gills pink, concolorous. Stipe grey, flocculose, 1.5 mm diam. with small rooting rhizoids. Microscopically cap cells distinctive in groups of segmented cells with terminal cell tapered. Pleurocystidia broadly fusiform. Sporeprint pink. One of two different Pluteus seen on soil in this small area of remnant mature coastal broadleaf forest.

Description

Small Pluteus on very rotten small branch on ground. Cap tan-brown colour with wrinkles in centre, 2 cm diam. x 2 cm height. Gills pink, concolorous. Stipe cream, flocculose, 2 mm diam. Microscopically cap cells generally ovoid to conical, some with a tapered apex. Some cheilocystidia with distinct projection. Very few (if any) pleurocystidia seen although a few gill face cells with projections which may be pleurocystidia? Remnant mature coastal broadleaf forest.

Description

Medium sized Pluteus with mid-brown cap on very rotten small branch. Juvenile fruiting body lighter in colour. Cap size 1.5-3.5 cm diam. x 2-4 cm height. Gills pink concolorous. Stipe cream, flocculose, 2-3 mm diam. Microscopically the terminal cap cells have no pigment. The pleurocystidia are plentiful with shape generally fusiform with a conical apex and variable width. Sporeprint pink. Remnant mature coastal broadleaf forest.

Description

Medium sized creamy light brown Pluteus on small fallen rotting branch. Cap 3-3.5 cm diam. x 4 cm. height. Gills pink, concolorous. Stipe cream, 3 mm diam. Macroscopically looks the same as observation 1038997. Microscopically pleurocystidia are narrower (pleurocystidia and cheilocystidia can be quite variable). Cap cells similar, brown pigment, clavate - widest at apex, with rounded apex, slight constriction below apex in some. Stipe cystidia clavate. Remnant mature coastal broadleaf forest.

Description

Large Pluteus with a tan coloured cap, 4.7-5 cm diam. x 5.5 cm height. Cap is distinctly wrinkled in centre which can also be seen in small juvenile cap. Gills cream turning very pink. Lamellae are deep, about 1 cm. Stipe is creamy, finely flocculose, 4 mm diam. On dead fallen whiteywood branch (still attached to living tree) in remnant coastal broadleaf forest.

Description from Wikipedia

The Pluteaceae are a family of small to medium-sized mushrooms which have free gill attachment and pink spores. Members of Pluteaceae can be mistaken for members of Entolomataceae, but can be distinguished by their angled spores and attached gills. The four genera in the Pluteaceae include the widely distributed Volvariella and Pluteus, the rare Chamaeota, and Volvopluteus, newly described in 2011 as a result of molecular analysis. The Dictionary of the Fungi (10th edition, 2008) estimates...
