very likely in the salicinus group

hard to say if it is the true P. salicinus without looking under the microscope. There is at least one look-alike of salicinus in North America (Pluteus saupei)

great find Eva..

this definitely looks like an undescribed active Pluteus.
cyanopus might be close.
the light margin and color rule out salicinus, imo.
you should see if Fredo wants to look at this.

nice find!!

nice shots!
