Yea, might not be the best guide, but I think micro fits both species unless you see something I don’t? And for the record, this was more green then the pictures indicate.

could also just be Leotia lubrica here…

cap color would appear to be a variable, and the micro characters that you show also fit lubrica.

nice shot of that bisected fruit body showing the thick slime layer!
