This grass had a "seed" on it that had strong UV fluorescence that the moth in the previous observations was attracted too. The stamens though appeared to be present beneath the UV fluorescent bit at about the same distance as the moths body.

Description

Smells like peas, almost bleachy but not like leptocephala. Taste is unpleasant at first and then strongly acrid and bitter, and leaves a burning sensation in the mouth for several minutes.

All microscopy at 1000x numbers on scale bar are 10um, notches are 1um. 1st image is spores in KOH. The rest are congo red. 2nd is hyphae from stipe cortex close to gills. 3rd is stipe cortex, but seems to have basidia and these other weird cells found on gill edge. 4 is gill edge for comparison, 5 and 6 are from stipe cortex, looks like the caulocystidia. The last two are from the gill edge.
