Cystoderma jasonis

Posted by
Johan Dierckx (Wijnegem, Belgium) on 26 January 2012 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

Cystoderma jasonis (NL: Oranjebruine korrelhoed / EN: Saffron parasol, Saffron powder-cap, Earthy powder-cap / DE: Langsporiger Körnchenschirmling / FR: Cystoderme à spores allongées, Cystoderme de Jason) is a small orange-ochre, or yellowish-brown, gilled mushroom growing in damp mossy grassland, in coniferous forest clearings, or on wooded heaths. Cystoderma jasonis is the current name for two taxa that were previously known as varieties of Cystoderma amianthinum (var. longisporum and var. sublongisporum). C. jasonis has a darker brown cap and stem with slightly larger granules, a sometimes purple stem apex, and slightly larger spores. Microscopic examination is necessary for a correct determination !

Another very nice image of the same species (a young specimen) was posted by Aminus3-member Lia on 17/11/2011.

Prachtig beeld, Johan.

@Aubélia: Dank je, Aubélia. Ik werd vooral aangetrokken door de structuur van de hoed en de steel in combinatie met de kleur. Had tikje meer scherpte in mogen zitten.... Groetjes !

@L'Angevine: just a very small one then ... :-) Thx for passing by.

Lia from Zwolle, Netherlands

Dit vind ik nou een perfecte foto Johan!
Kleur, licht, scherpte, achtergrond...alles mooi.

@Lia: Ik ben er tevreden mee (anders had ik hem ook niet geplaatst hier), maar vooral de hoed had toch nog wel een stuk meer scherpte kunnen verdragen volgens mij.... De korrelige structuur komt voor mij niet helemaal tot zijn recht - al moet ik zeggen dat al mijn foto's van dit exemplaar hetzelfde euvel hebben - misschien was deze uit zichzelf wel zo - maar toch... Verder ben ik uiteraard erg gevleid met dit commentaar. Groetjes !

Jaytee from Fresno, California, United States

I like it's bumpy looking cap. The color of this one is also nice. Good day.

@Jaytee: Exact the two elements that attracted me the most in this species, Jaytee. Have a nice day too !
