How about

calling it Entoloma and saying in the comment box ‘aff. placidum’.
Also, what does ‘aff. placidum’ really mean? It’s small and blue (then it would be aff. every other ‘Leptonia’).
Was it in some way microscopically similar?

right, it’s a “similar to”

MO won’t let me call it Entoloma aff. placidum, but I did so label the photos.

Do not think this to be placidum.

E. placidum as I know it is from temperate regions and growing with beech preferably in higher regions. I regularly find it in 1000 m NN along a shady brook. But then again during my stay in Oz there were also such locations where I thought here it could grow which of course it did not nevertheless.
