Ripartites tricholoma, commonly known as the bearded seamine, is a species of fungus in the Tricholomataceae family. It was first described scientifically as Agaricus tricholoma by Albertini and Lewis David von Schweinitz in 1805,[1] and later transferred into the genus Ripartites by Petter Karsten in 1879.[2] It is found in North America and Europe,[3] and has also been collected in Costa Rica.[4]


R. tricholoma, showing the spiny hairs at left.

This fungus is reminiscent of a Clitocybe, but the spore powder is light brown instead of white, and when young the cap rim is surrounded by spine-like hairs, which quickly disappear. The cap is convex and whitish with a diameter ranging up to 7 cm (the sources differ on the range of dimensions). The gills are off-white and they are somewhat decurrent down the brownish stem, which has a white frosting ("pruina") when fresh. The flesh has a mild taste and the smell is not distinctive. The roughly spherical spores are warty and about 5 µm x 4 µm in size.[5][6][7]
