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)?

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?
