|This Pluteus species is quite large, this specimen being 10cm in diam. It had conspicuous concentric 'wrinkles' on its cap.|
|The gills have a conspicuous brown edge. This is caused by the large cells along the gill edge having brown pigment in them.|
|These large brown cells along the gill edge are known as cheilocystidia.
They are filled with a brown pigment.
|These thickwalled cells are found along the side of the gill and are known as pleurocystidia.
Note the 'hooks' that are on the the ends of the pleurocystidia.
