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

Microscopically the pileipellis terminal cells are similar to Pluteus perroseus but the stipe of these fruit bodies was quite yellow in colour.

Description: This medium sized Pluteus species has a dark brown velvety cap surface with dark raised squamules which are very dense in the centre. The gills are cream-pink in colour with a fine dark edge. The fruit bodies grow up to 4-5 cm in diameter. The stipe is quite yellow in colour with ‘fibrils’ projecting out from the stipe in tiny scattered groups.

Abundance: Rarely observed in the Mangemangeroa Reserve.
