[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Pileus hygrophanous, red-brown, yellow-brown when moist, brown-beige to light ochre when dry; 10-30(40) mm in diameter, convex to expanding, sometimes with a small umbo; when viscid transparently striate up to 1/2 from the margin, young speciesmens with whitish fibrils of the veil on the edge of the cap; surface not viscid.

Spore print ochre-brown. Spores ellipsoid, smooth, light-yellowish, 6.5-10 x 4.5-5.5 µm.

Habitat: Common. Fruiting bodies appear in winter part of the year, on plant remains and on rotting wood. In and outside of forests.

Remarks: This species is very close to Tubaria furfuracea which in sensu stricto grows in summer part of the year, rather on plants' remains and soil than on wood.

Hello Felipe,

This is beautiful! Especially the left picture is what I like. Light is very good in both pictures, POV and DOF are excellent and details are crisp & clear. You did a helluvajob! Well done & TFS!


Another great shot.
I like the left one better but I can see why you put the right one in as well..
TFS - Shir.

Hi Felipe,
As you said, specie of Laccaria genus doesn't have white veil; moreover they isn't lignicolous.
This is Tubaria hiemalis Romagnesi ex Bon 1992 (very probably) or Tubaria furfuracea (Persoon 1801) Gillet 1876;
the difference is only microscopical: T. hiemalis has got capitatee pleurocistidia, T. furfuracea not.
These are two very common species all over the world, they grow on dead wood (or residual). The white veilipellis on the cap is typical.
P.S. Did you receive my mail (with photos) about Inocybe calamistrata?
