Larger Dull-footed Chroogomphus     Section



Cortinarius husseyiKey to Gilled Mushrooms     Key
This is a key to gilled mushrooms, that is, mushrooms having a definite cap with a fertile surface consisting of gills. The fruiting body usually also has a stem, although that may be lateral or absent (usually, then, the mushroom is growing from wood). You can use this key to identify mushrooms that you find.



TricholomaAgaricales     Order
Fruiting body containing fibers (usually in the stalk)



Gomphidius glutinosusGomphidiaceae     Family
Spore print smoky-olive to black
Gills very decurrent, becoming smoky in age from developing spores
Cap typically slimy, or at least viscid
Under conifers only


Chroogomphus vinicolorChroogomphus     Genus
Flesh (and gills, before they become colored by developing spores) colored: pinkish, yellow or orange
More likely to be umbonate

Diagnosis

Comments

Because of the tremendous variability in cap color, the species of this section can only be distinguished (conclusively) microscopically

Narrow down your identification:


Chroogomphus vinicolorChroogomphus jamaicensis
Spores 17-20 x 4.5-6 Ám
Cystidia with uniformly thickened walls: up to 5 Ám thick
Cap cuticule hyphae 2-5 Ám wide

Chroogomphus rutilus
Cap flatter, duller, browner than the other species in the section
