this as a Rhodocybe at first, but I have have the dried material (this was collected a couple months ago I think) and a light print so I am going to look at this more and hopefully update this observation with more information and better micrographs.

Hi Christine…nice find!

Your spore micrograph is a bit difficult to see…was that a nodulose spore to your eye when you scoped it?

Interesting

It looks a lot like Rhodocybe gemina
http://www.funghiitaliani.it/index.php?showtopic=24311

It’s not supposed to occur in your area, instead a corresponding species named roseiavellanea. I haven’t been able to find any picture of that species
but it’s mentioned in this paper:
http://www2.cortland.edu/dotAsset/250553.pdf

Spore size in gemina: 4.5-7 × 3-4.5 μm
in roseiavellanea: (6.5–)7–9(−10)× (4–)5–5.5(−7) μm
