Leratiomyces magnivelaris is a small agaric that grows scattered or gregariously in waste places, grassy areas, and wood chips. It has a pale greyish-yellow to ochraceous cap and usually a ring darkened by falling spores.

Cap initially convex, later becoming broadly convex or broadly bell-shaped. It is sticky when fresh but soon dries. It ranges in colour from pale greyish yellow to ochraceous to brownish orange, with scattered, floccose scales that increase toward the margin. The margin is adorned with hanging white partial veil remnants, particularly when young. It is not strongly hygrophanous. Gills either attached to the stem or starting to run down it. They are close together, initially whitish in colour, then transitioning to purplish-grey to purple-black. Stem equal to enlarged towards the apex and tapering below and white to dingy yellowish. The partial veil is membranous, leaving a thick, white membranous annulus, often flaring, which can deteriorate into an annular zone. Spore print dark purplish brown.

Microscopic Features: Spores are smooth, ellipsoidal, measuring 13-15 µm in length and 6-8 µm in width.

Synonyms: Stropharia magnivelaris and Stropholoma magnivelaris are synonyms.

Many mushrooms are poisonous and some are lethally poisonous. It can be very difficult to distinguish between an edible and a poisonous mushroom. Because of that, we strongly advise against consuming wild mushrooms, and this site does not contain any information about the edibility or toxicity of mushrooms.

Although efforts have been made to ensure accuracy on this website, the information may contain errors and omissions. Therefore, the information presented here is for informational purposes only and should not be relied upon as any basis for consuming any plants or mushrooms.
