You can write Inocybe fibrosa ss. Kauffman or you can cite the whole thing if I do not err.

you should have written that in the species name citation ss. Kauffman to avoid confusions. Great find BTW!

Kauffman applied the name to specimens collected in MI and NY. This specimen fits well with the description here: http://www.mushroomexpert.com/inocybe_fibrosa.html
and is likely NOT genetically, ecologically, or even morphologically identical to any European species.

Are you sure about that?

I know Inocybe fibrosa from here in Europe and it grows exclusively with conifers (fir, spruce).
I am not familiar with global distribution patterns of that species though. Although I think there are not many species that overlap on all continents.
