Entoloma conferendum

Entoloma conferendum (Entoloma conferendum) is a species of mushrooms from the Entomolova family, belonging to the Entoloma genus.

External description

The fruit body of the collected entoloma (Entoloma conferendum) consists of a cap, a leg, a lamellar hymenophore.

The diameter of the mushroom cap varies in the range of 2.3-5 cm. In young fruiting bodies, its shape is characterized as spherical or conical, but gradually opens up to convex-outstretched or simply convex. In its central part, a faint tubercle can sometimes be seen. The cap is hygrophilous, has a red-brown or grayish-brown color, most often it is shiny and dark, sometimes in the center it can be covered with small scales, thin fibers. In immature fruiting bodies, the edges of the cap are turned up.

The lamellar hymenophore consists of often spaced plates that practically do not touch the surface of the pedicle. In young mushrooms, the plates are white, gradually becoming pinkish, and in old mushrooms they become pinkish-brown.

The length of the stem of the entoloma collected varies within 2.5-8 cm, and the thickness can reach 0.2-0.7 cm. The shape of the stem is predominantly cylindrical, at the base it is often widened, characterized by a yellow-brown or gray-brown color. Its surface is covered with well-visible gray stripes. The capillary ring of the fungus collected by Entoloma conferendum is absent.

The color of the spore powder is pink. It consists of spores 8-147-13 microns in size. most often they have an angular shape, but in general they can take any format.
