it is entirely possible that this is in sect. Hispidoderma.

some Celluloderma can also have a “velvety” aspect (e.g. Pluteus podospileus) and the way the pileipellis cracks is very Celluloderma-like to me.

the only way to know for sure would be to put this under the microscope!

at your assessment Fredo. To me the pilius surface has the velvety look of section Hispidoderma.

Thank you
