This mature but slug-eaten specimen is a medium to large species, with viscid cap and non-weeping gills. It is uncommon. Cystidia are narrowly clavate with slightly swollen tips and many of the spores have a loosening perispore i.e. the outer layer of the spore tends to come away from the main body of the spore. This feature can be seen on some of the spores in the photo where the spores seem to have 2 ‘coats’. The process can start with what looks like a tiny blister on the outer wall of the spore. Ist Notts record.
