Fruiting from large conifer stump; annulus absent, pileus glutinous, peach orange.
These 1" to 1.5" gilled mushrooms were growing on the ground in a very shady part of the forest where there are lots of Douglas-firs and other conifers. There were about six growing within a 10' square area. The spore print is rich golden brown. No veil, and a stringy stipe. I'm guessing the Pholiota genus just by looking through my mushroom book.
without smell, well away from tea-tree in deep moss. Spore colour snuff brown. Gills with decurrent tooth. Cap with separable gelatinous pellicle, and with white veilar remnants floating in slime. Stem with white fibrils on yellow background. KOH on cap no reaction. Cap a clamped cutis with extracellular pigment. No rhizoids. With pleuro and cheilocystidia and of different shapes. Some cheilocystidia with yellow content in water. Spores smooth, with small germ pore, thick-walled. length=8.6–10.5µm (µ=9.5, σ=0.5), width=5.4–6.3µm (µ=5.8, σ=0.2), Q=1.5–1.8µm (µ=1.6, σ=0.1), n=12. Oversized spores so perhaps 2 & 4 spored. Caulocytidia absent. Stem diam=2.8–4.0mm (µ=3.2, σ=0.4) No thickening of spores near germ pore seen. ITS indicates relation to P. multicingulata and an Antarctic species from Deception Island. Common in Canterbury Plains Kanuka remnants
Brown spore print.
