have any idea. Interestingly I did send some M. rodmani out for herbarium specimens and DNA sequencing. Word is that these mushrooms might be eventually placed in Clitocybula. I’m not aware of what the final verdict is…

Definitely not a Russula

The gills and flesh were soft. Very much fits my emerging gestalt for Megacollybia. What are the differences between M. platyphylla and M. rodmani? Looking through the observations on the site the first appears to be European and the second North American. Are there macroscopic differences as well?
