The species was just mentioned in the comments of L. aspera in North American mushroomz (Miller). I dont have the original description.

do you mean: L. eriophora ss. D.A. Reid 1958 (aka Echinoderma pseudoasperulum) or ss. auct. europ. (aka Echinoderma jacobi)?

It looked strange to me too,

And that it is because it is not aspera. Spores very small – 4-4.5 × 2-2.5 or even smaller. L. eriophora.

To see the gill attachment. The stem seems mighty floccose for L. aspera, does it not?
