Though the Danish funga has been studied for years we each year finds between 30 and 70 new species for the country—and in addition a number of seemingly undescribed ones. On the borderline between these two groups is a collection I made this summer on wood chips on a small path on the Danish island Læsø. The description reads:
Pileus 15-25 mm, convex, yellow brown, covered with small, upright, fibrillose scales, near the margin with white, fibrillose remnant of velum universale; lamellae adnate to somewhat emarginate or slightly decurrent, L20, l6-7, cream to pale yellow brown, margin floccose-crenelate; stipe to 25 x 3 mm, dull brown with a whitish veil zone slightly abowe the middle and felty at the base; smell and taste none; spp. dark greyish brown. Spores 4-4.5 x 7-7.5 µm, amygdalaeform to ellipsoid, smooth, brown with an obscure germ pore; cheilocystidia irregularly clavate to monilliform, 8-13 µm wide; pileipellis of upright, brown, strongly ornamented hyphae; clamps +.
Now, descriptions are always difficult but the pictures reveals something like a Galerina marginata but with the cap cuticle like a Flammulaster or Phaeomarasmius. There are species in both these genera which seems rather close without being rearly convincing.
We would much like suggestions—It is unlikely that such a striking species has not been recorded elsewhere by any of you keen mycologists :-)
