This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1918 edition. Excerpt: apparently one of the American forms of I. lanuginosa (Fr.) Bres., to which Peck referred his species in his monograph of the New York Inocybes. (N. Y. State Mus. Bull. 139, p. 51.) But this seems unwarranted in view of the spore-measurements of I. lanuginosa given by such authorities as Bresadola and Schroeter who agree that the spores of the European species are much larger, about 11-15 x 8-9 micr. Specimens from three widely different localities in Michigan and New York yielded the same, smaller-sized spores. Schroeter has described a similar species, /. lanuginella, of which the spores are given the same size as ours, but have "prominent angles;" this may be our plant. This species was reported as I. cntomospora, (see Mich. Acad. Sci. Hep. 8, p. 26) but became a nomen nuda by the publication of the above name by Atkinson after this report was in press. 468. Inocybe calospora Quel. Bresadola, Fungi Trid., 1881. Illustrations: Ibid, Pl. 21. PIate XCI of this Report. PILEUS 1-3 cm. broad, conic-campanulate at first, then expanded, umbonate, fuscous-rufescent, fading to ochraceous, umbo darker, covered, except umbo, by loose or recurved fibrillose scales, margin fibrillose and paler; flesh thin, pale. GILLS adnexed to almost free, rather narrow, subventricose, pallid then pale fuscous-cinnamon, edge white-fimbriate. STEM 3-6 cm. long, 1.5-2.5 mm. thick, firm, rigid-elastic, subequal, stuffed then hollow, pale brown, rufescent, sprinkled with a delicate pruinosity, bulbillate. SPORES spherical or nearly so, 9-12 micr. diam. (incl. aculeae), covered with cylindrical, blunt aculeae, 2-3 micr. long. CYSTIDIA few or scattered on sides, numerous on edge of gills, subventricose, apex granulate, 40-55 x 8-12 micr. ODOR none. Gregarious. more
